INFORMATION SYSTEMS

At Avia-GIS, we develop innovative generic and user tailored Spatio-Temporal Information Systems. We follow a user driven approach. First we define the user needs and requirements during interviews and/or dedicated workshops. These are translated into system requirements by our technical staff. Based on the existing state of the art the best solutions are discussed. Finally a prototype system is developed and tested during a pilot for validation.

ENTOMATIC

Project Title: 
Novel automatic and stand-alone integrated pest management tool for remote count and bio-acoustic identification of the Olive Fly in the field.
Acronym: 
ENTOMATIC
Start: 
2014
End: 
2017
Duration in months: 
42
Funding agency: 
Olive oil industry group through FP7
Geograpic tags: 
Europe, Mediterranean, France, Greece, Portugal, Spain and Turkey.

 Avia-GIS is in charge of developing the ENTOMATIC spatial information system to monitor the olive fly (Bactrocera oleae). The developed spatial information system will enable the monitoring and control of the olive fly in the Mediterranean.

EPITicks

Project Title: 
Monitoring ticks in Belgium
Acronym: 
EPITicks
Start: 
2014
End: 
2015
Duration in months: 
6
Funding agency: 
WIV-ISP Scientific Institute for Public Health (Brussels, Belgium)
Geograpic tags: 
Europe, Belgium

Avia-GIS is in charge of developing the EPITicks website and mobile application. The final objective is to develop a website and mobile app to report tick bites in Belgium by anonymous and registered users.

FascRisk

Project Title: 
Informing about the burden of liver fluke in dairy cattle in Europe
Acronym: 
FascRisk
Start: 
2012
End: 
2014
Duration in months: 
42
Funding agency: 
ZOETIS Animal Health (Brussels, Belgium)
Geograpic tags: 
Europe

Avia-GIS was in charge of developing the FascRisk website and mobile application. The global objective was to develop a website and mobile app to provide scientific back-up supporting the sales of flukicides in Europe.

HAT-IS

Project Title: 
Pilot for the eradication of rhodesiense sleeping sickness in Uganda
Acronym: 
HAT-IS
Start: 
2014
End: 
2015
Duration in months: 
6
Funding agency: 
Subcontract from Social Finance (London, UK) funded by DFID – Department for International Development (London, UK)
Geograpic tags: 
Africa, Uganda

Avia-GIS was in charge of developing the spatial information system. The developed spatial information system enables the planning and monitoring of mass treatment of cattle in Uganda to eliminate the animal reservoir of human rhodesiense sleeping sickness. The system will be tested during a pilot.

LymeMAP

Project Title: 
LymeMAP feasibility study, a “rapid update” interactive, spatially accurate Lyme Borreliosis identification and risk management system
Acronym: 
LymeMAP
Start: 
2015
Duration in months: 
9
Funding agency: 
Co-funded (50%) by the Integrated Applications Program (IAP) of the European Space Agency (ESA-ESTEC, IAP), Noordwijk, The Netherlands
Geograpic tags: 
Europe, United Kingdom, Scotland

Avia-GIS is part of a consortium of five partners led by SRUC – The Scotland Rural College (Inverness, UK). As part of the feasibility study, Avia-GIS is in charge of conducting the economic and non-economic viability analysis.
