Enabling Community Groups
Eagle Technology engages with community groups to further the use of technology in enabling conservation, education and not-for-profit groups that support our communities.
GIS for Emergency Management
GIS has become integral to Emergency Management in New Zealand. Emergency Management organisations use and embed it within their processes to collect, store, analyse and display information for decision-making before, during, and after events. Alongside this, many organisations that do not have an Emergency Management focus but who do carry out vital operations (such as utilities, transportation, or agriculture) also use GIS to assist with their planning and work when they are affected by adverse events. We have a long history of supporting our customers during emergencies in a variety of ways.
Alongside all the standard GIS resources, we want to list 3 specific resource areas for Emergency Management GIS in NZ as follows:
- Dedicated Emergency Support email to assist when you need help most email@example.com
- A range of options to build your capability including practical emergency management workshops and customised training in specific workflows upon request. We’d also recommend viewing a recording of the recent ArcGIS for Emergency Management webinar.
- Our new Emergency Management Hub resource - a great place to find content and other links to support your GIS emergency response activities - (Eagle Technology Emergency GIS Hub)

GIS in Education
Geographic Information System (GIS) are playing an increasingly important role GIS in education. With GIS, students of all ages can explore and understand their world.
GIS helps students and educators engage in studies that promote critical thinking, integrated learning, and multiple intelligences at the same time students will be acquiring valuable skills that can be transferred into the twenty-first-century workforce, whether they are involved in science, government, or business.
