Congratulations to the Belgian national mapping agency NGI/IGN for winning the E-Gov Award 2017 !

The winning project concerns the cartography of wildfires, and was executed on the ASTRID Geoportal. This portal serves the Belgian emergency services and its daily operations. It is based on Geocortex and integrated by SIGGIS. Earlier this year the NGI/IGN cartography project made it to national news because of large wildfires in the forest and heath areas in the province of Antwerp.

Ingrid Vanden Berghe, General manager of NGI/IGN, is grateful and especially happy for this award, because it acknowledges the need and benefits of inter-organizational cooperation.
