NAMA: A GIS-based Network-analysis Approach for Mine Action

Cottray, Olivier
Published in Journal of ERW and Mine Action. 2013, vol. 17, no. 3
Abstract The time needed to travel through a network of roads is of significant importance in the context of mine action. Network Analysis for Mine Action (NAMA), a method based on geographic information system (GIS) network-analysis tools, can be used for many applications that support strategic planning and decision-making in mine action and in the broader humanitarian sector (e.g., food delivery and rescue operations). This hypothetical case study illustrates one possible application, identifying the location for a new medical and rehabilitative facility that would speed up the provision of care to mine victims.
