KBS Disaster Broadcasting Center

GBS Korea has built GIS contents that can update, visualise and use disaster information in real time for KBS Disaster Broadcasting Center.

Due to four very distinct seasons with various climate environments in Korea, preparation was needed for a variation of natural disasters such as typhoons, dust-contamination, wild fires and earthquakes. Therefore, weather prediction is key in order to reduce casualties and property losses, especially in hugely populated areas.

The GBS Korea Solution & Process

  • Introduction of ArcGIS Platform and Enterprise Geodatabase (SDE)
  • Automate the process to convert data loaded into GIS data in a general database
  • Create a specialised theme chart for each disaster type and establish real-time GIS data to be prepared at all times
  • Update the status of each disaster in real time using ArcGIS Dashboards
  • Implement 3D visualisation to facilitate visual understanding of disaster sites and impact ranges
  • Broadcast preparation mode support such as cue sheets so that each reporter can prepare for the broadcast (WebApp Builder)
  • Applying the latest web technology to ensure fast operation and responsiveness during broadcasting
