GIMSYS - Visualizing and disseminating information

The low level of energetic services access at all levels (health institutions, schools, households, small businesses, administration, ...) is a key issue for the economic and social development in rural areas. The multisectorial approach is now a  leading principle to access to energetic services for urban and rural . Energetic programmes must, from now more than in the past, be based on needs and services identification for territory development, and on cooperation with others sectorials investments to guarantee a strong economic and social impact, but also a market.

GIMSYS© is a user friendly computer application accessible to all, built using the Geographic information System technology (GIS)  coupled to an Internet/ Intranet interface which:

- offer a remote access opportunity in real time to the strategic and multisectorial information often required for a sectorial decision making.

-  Introduce data sharing and pooling allowing territorial stakeholders who put information proper to its sector at disposal, to benefit in return to a consolidated geo-referenced database.

- help Decision-making for planners and project managers who benefit from a cartographic and sectorial information platform…

The sustainable information sharing for all, using the Geographical Information System technology    

Various benefits from the GIMSYS© exchange data platform  :
