InaSAFE is a contingency planning tool to help build resilient communities in the event of disasters. InaSAFE is built on top of QGIS. In this project we extended InaSAFE to support Africa-centric requirements, provided training to practitioners from participating countries and developed features in QGIS and GeoNode to support integration between QGIS, GeoNode, InaSAFE. We also deployed a new online version of InaSAFE (‘GeoSAFE’) that runs under GeoNode, first as a public demo and finally as a production instance at the INGC in Maputo.
Kartoza extended GeoNode to provide QGIS server as an alternative back-end to GeoServer. We also took deployment and orchestration to a new level with Rancher, which enables the easy deployment and management of complex system architectures with Docker containers.
Kartoza built a web interface to InaSAFE that integrates with GeoNode and uses a headless InaSAFE running on QGIS server to perform InaSAFE analyses and produce reports.
