Description

Eptisa has developed the iPol-Police Intelligence Project for the Directorate of Security of the Madrid City Council. This is an innovative solution that combines the functionality of Geographical Information Systems with MetaCarta Geosearch technology.

iPOL browses those databases that might be of interest to the police and the information published in different digital communication media and other websites (online newspapers, blogs, forums, etc.) of interest to Police Intelligence and displays the results on a map of Madrid. The resulting package of geographical and alphanumerical information compiled by the application provides the Police with a complete security management system that helps them to anticipate crime.

The iPol project consists of a web application that is intuitive and user friendly, the cartographic system of the city of Madrid (SIGMA), MetaCarta, geographical content search technology and the ESRI geographical information systems for making the maps. Finally, iPol incorporates the Crime Analyst tool, which provides security managers with statistics capabilities of determining the crimes committed in the different districts and describing in detail the time of day or the day or days of the week at/on which they occur in order to obtain a broader vision of criminal activity that might be of help when taking preventive actions.
