ESRI Bulgaria was awarded for the implementation of web GIS application for bTV in the contest for Responsible Business Awards of BBLF.
Sofia, 27th of Feb 2014 – ESRI Bulgaria’s project developed for the campaign of the national TV channel bTV – “Let’s clean Bulgaria for a day” was awarded in the XI-th contest for Responsible Business Awards of the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum (BBLF). ESRI Bulgaria won second prize in the category “Investor in Environment” for the implementation of web GIS application supporting the campaign of bTV. Mrs. Evgenia Karadjova, CEO of ESRI Bulgaria received the prestigious award from Mrs. Jordanka Fandakova, Mayor of Sofia.
In 2013 ESRI Bulgaria for the second consecutive year was an official partner in the green initiative of bTV Media Group “Let’s Clean Bulgaria in one day.” The company developed the web GIS application http://www.btv.bg/da-izchistim/map/ for the web site of the initiative.
The web application allows citizens to register the location of the perceived waste on interactive dynamic map. The map supports both data for marked waste and information for the locations of the depots, sites for cleaning and etc. Thus ESRI Bulgaria supported the process of marking the waste and allowed citizens to actively participate in the campaign. This increased the efficiency of the cleaning activities as well.
The web application represents the quantity and type of waste in different areas of the country, providing various reports and analyzes. So organizers can plan and distribute in the most effective way their resources, including volunteers and equipment, make arrangements for collection, cleaning and etc. The developed application supports the processes of logistics management for collection and disposal of waste.
The analysis of the information collected via GIS in the previous year, demonstrated that about 2,000 polluted areas marked in 2012, have been kept clean and only 40 of them have been polluted again.
ESRI Bulgaria will be an official partner of the bTV’s campaign “Let’s clean Bulgaria for a day” this year as well. The campaign will take place on 26th of April 2014.
