This project consists of five main tasks including strengthened pollution response functions of information system, completion of the database, design and publication of ESI maps, operation of education and customer service, and system maintenance and information security. The outcome of integrating the aforementioned works shall be shown by system subjects separately.
Developing an all new emergency materials and equipment information management system is the one of most 2 important jobs in this project. It contains to develop the database and function of material quantity and format, maintenance records, and condition & number of transactions by authorized organization. This project establishes a correspondence between aggregate classify of materials and common units, to unified record. The system also provides the function of resources inquiry including style, size, quantity, and map distribution. In the other hand, contacted related staff by phone to confirm and renew the contact information to update the database.
In terms of the search for Marine HNS emergency measures, this project have transformed the original web-paged integer information of 45 chemicals into a database, with the newly-developed searching function of chemical combination, chemical compare and contrast page, single chemical information displayed by subjects, etc. so the users may search out possible chemicals via this system with fragmental information collected at the scene. This project also targets the 45 chemicals, sorting them separately according to their physical and chemical properties as well as coastal and sea rescue emergency management, and later compiling the correspondent items and creating the database.
Regarding strengthened pollution response functions, this project has added three fortified functions: 1) based on ship visa data exchanged daily with Ministry of Transportation and Communications, the system provides the function to check out the insurance information of coming ships; 2) design the events notification and authority on marine reporting system; 3) If there’s no respond 7 days after pollution occur, the system will using e-mail to inform the related person in EPA.
This project use Excel as a tool to build marine water quality monitoring data-built tool. The tool integrates the “xml” data format to output the file which the system could accept and transfer to database automatically. The marine water quality inquiry system has developed. Furthermore, marine water quality monitoring data have been collected this year for nine counties. Totally, about 28,000 water quality monitoring data have been established into database.
As to the issue of uploading ChemMap simulation results to this system, the graphic files adopted by the research team make the simulation results uploaded to the system have an optimal performance so that experts in this field can participate in discussion, the contents of uploaded data can be stipulated, the numerical analysis of simulated chemicals spill concentration can be done, and thus the user can identify chemicals spill concentration on the GIS.
ESI Maps book is another one of most 2 important jobs in this project. 10 counties geospatial and information data from EPA projects before are collected and make ESI map. Furthermore, this project collects maps from the related government organizations. Combining with professional graphic and design skills, the 84 ESI maps are made by 2 kinds of scale, and all of them got illustrate page. Totally, ESI Maps book is about 220 pages calculated by A4 size.
Meanwhile, overall website maintenance and information review will continue to be implemented. Technical manuals have been produced and five operation training courses have been held.
