Also this year the Calabria region is using JIXEL for the forest fires management. After the experimental phase of the last year, when the interventions (in which more resources than necessary have been involved) have been reduced by 100%, and the arrival times have been reduced by 40% (with a burned area decreased proportionally) thanks to the more efficient use of resources, the software has been refined by allowing the inclusion of polygons and polylines, updated statistics and new security techniques.

JIXEL for AIB Calabria 2009, used the last year to manage forest fires, has been awarded at ForumPA 2010. In particular, the VVF Department was winner of the award “Innovazione e Sicurezza” within the TechFOr (Salone Internazionale delle Tecnologie per la Sicurezza) with the project “Sistema Interoperabile per la gestione degli interventi negli incendi boschivi” (“Salvaguardia del Territorio” category).
The award ceremony took place on 17 May 2010 within the ForumPA.
