Development of maritime rescue application system using geographic information system approach

Zainal, Norfariza (2012) Development of maritime rescue application system using geographic information system approach. Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Faculty of Geoinformation and Real Estate.



Nowadays, computer-based Geographic Information System (GIS) technology is used in hydrographic process and retrieval of information. This technology can be used in maritime rescue operations to access geographical data and information. Normally, the data obtained are in the form of nautical charts and hydrographic charts. With GIS technology, these data can be delivered in a suitable digital format. In this regard, a study towards the development of interactive maritime rescue application system and database development for nautical chart based on the GIS concept was developed for the Port of Pasir Gudang, Johor, Malaysia. The software used to develop the maritime rescue application system are ESRI MapObjects 2.4, ArcView 3.1, Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 and Microsoft Access 2007. In addition, end-users can access and update information in the database from time to time in a cost-effective manner, if changes have been identified. Moreover, it can assist end-users to make queries such as locating vessels in danger areas and availability of nearby fire, rescue and medical services.
