We've mentioned in previous blog posts that we've been working on a new API for the [D4H] Decisions platform. We'll very soon be releasing a public beta for those interested in developing on it. We've listened to what potential developers want it to include, so we just want to give you a quick intro as to what you can expect from it.
Mine rescue is the specialized job of rescuing miners and others who have become trapped or injured on the site of a mine. Team members do not seek honour or prestige but strive for perfection in technique and precision of execution as they face the tasks presented before them. To spread the knowledge of the good work these teams do daily we’ve comprised a list of Associations and Competitions in Canada.
Maps are at the core of any Search and Rescue (SAR) operation. Geographic information system (GIS) software allows rescue personnel to quickly generate maps that depict specific aspects of the operation and show what is happening on the ground over time. D4H Technologies have released yet another integration with Esri to allow for quick MapSAR member management.
The exploration of the earths natural resources is a dangerous undertaking. Mining laws in developed countries require trained and equipped mine rescue personnel to be available on mine sites. Mine rescue competitions provide an invaluable opportunity for these teams to test their skills against industry standards.
