A critical component of the NRA’s mandate is Information Management. The NRA acts as central point for information on sector activity, and receives and houses data of major areas of UXO Mine/action including:
- Clearance, roving and survey activities
- Risk Education activities
- Accident rates
- Victim information
- Land use
- Impact assessments
- Historical bombing data and GIS Mapping
The NRA uses a specialised Information Management System to efficiently and accurately handle the volume and scope of information. This system was purpose built for the global Mine Action issue and is called IMSMA (Information Management System for Mine Action).
The NRA currently has installed and uses the latest version of IMSMA, and is able to produce materials of operational and analytical value to all agents in the sector; they include:
- General and specialised Maps
- Monthly progress reports
- Sub-sector information reports and trend analyses
- Spatial analyses.
