Chernobyl GIS on 21 Anniversary of Disaster

Exactly 21 years after the disaster in 1986 (I was graduating college…) IBS, an IT firm in Russia announced the completion of a GIS project called “The Integrated Shelter Database” (ISDB) for the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.” The system integrates various data from the plant and uses technology from Oralce, Microsoft and ESRI.

Apart from helping to operate the Shelter more efficiently and to monitor its state, the system enables coordinated actions of the subdivisions responsible for nuclear, radiation, general industrial and fire safety at the Chernobyl NPP. Deployment of ISDB made it possible to enhance safety for the Chernobyl NPP staff, and also for the population and the environment.
