How BMKG is keeping Indonesia safe with GIS
Situated in the equatorial Pacific, Indonesia is particularly vulnerable to the effects of severe weather events, with disasters such as heavy rains, strong winds and high temperatures contributing to the nation’s largest damage bills.
To combat this increasing threat, Indonesia's meteorology service BMKG saw the need to update its weather mapping technology and automate its early warning system, developing a GIS-powered solution called Nowcasting.
Today, Nowcasting is Indonesia's go-to source of weather information, proving to be vital in alerting the public to extreme weather, natural disasters and other environmental conditions.
