To provide public with more ways to obtain the emergency information of Macau, Cartography and Cadastre Bureau of Macao Special Administrative Region has launched the “GeoGuide for emergency” mobile map App, which allows the public to obtain important information such as the areas may be affected during different “Storm Surge” warning levels, areas may be affected by Power Suspension Measures, Real-time water level monitoring information, location of each Emergency Refuge Centre and the Emergency Hotline of Macau via mobile phone.
The APP has built-in geographic information such as areas may be affected during different “Storm Surge”, Emergency Refuge Centre, Meeting Place / Place to Stay for Emergency Evacuation, Hospital, Health Center, Public Security Unit, Fire Services Unit and Customs Unit. The public only needs to activate the satellite positioning function of the mobile phone to see if the current location is within the expected range of the “Storm Surge”, and learn about the location information of the nearby Emergency Refuge Centre and Place to Stay for Emergency Evacuation.
Once the network is connected, when Macao Geophysical and Meteorological Bureau issues a “Storm Surge” warning, the application will display information such as the immediate warning level and the latest weather conditions. The application also provides offline viewing even if the network is disconnected, so that the public can still browse the urgent geographic information such as the areas may be affected during different “Storm Surge” via mobile phone.
