UrbIS, the BRIC and survivinginbrussels.be

Illustration de l'actualité - cliquer pour agrandir

In this day and age, too many people still live in poverty or on the street. That is why about a hundred Brussels organisations have joined forces to create survivinginbrussels.be. For a part of the technical development, they collaborated with the BRIC. Curious about our input? Then keep reading!

Look, find, survive

Surviving.brussels makes sure that homeless and disadvantaged people know where they can spend the night, receive medical assistance or legal support, and get some food in a few clicks or swipes. This is available in no less than ten different languages and works on the base of numerous very clear icons, which equals an inclusive, very user-friendly platform.

In order to ensure that these people will find their way to these places, a map has been integrated into the platform, among other things. And that is where the BRIC comes in, because this interactive map was generated using our cartographic UrbIS tools!

It goes without saying that the BRIC is very proud of the support that we have provided, because it perfectly illustrates our mission: boosting the quality of life for everyone in the Brussels region through our IT expertise and tools.

About survivinginbrussels.be

Survivinginbrussels.be was created in 2015 by some volunteers at Doucheflux. However, the project only really took off this year, after they received subsidies from Brussels Smart City. The platform is a textbook example of how we as a society can evolve positively with technology, innovation and IoT as building blocks.
