This was stated by Bernard Gašić, State Secretary at the Central State Office for Digital Society, who in an interview with Croatian Radio called on citizens who have problems with signal strength to contact the task force dealing with the aftermath of the 29 December earthquake so it could help them solve the problem in cooperation with telecommunications operators.

Gašić said that his office, in cooperation with the Faculty of Geodesy and the State Geodesy Office had launched a geoinformation system to help the task force follow all activities on the ground.

The system helps the task force follow information on activities on the ground, including data on all locations in the epicentre of the earthquake, addresses, streets, settlements, counties, or citizens’ residence.

Also followed are data on structural engineers’ estimates of buildings damaged in the quake as well as firefighters’ and the police force’s activities. The system is also expected to provide information on which citizens need to be delivered meals, Gršić said.

The application is currently intended only for the work of the task force but in the long run it will be used to help citizens collect information needed to apply for housing reconstruction, Gršić said.
