U.S. Firm Providing Portable Mapping Devices For Ebola Fight

MONROVIA, October 8 (LINA) – An American geo-spatial technology company is providing Liberia with portable mapping devices to help contain the Ebola outbreak.

The Ebola virus outbreak in Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Nigeria has killed hundreds of people and is yet to be contained since its outbreak in the sub-region early this year.

According to a media statement to the Liberia News Agency Wednesday, the company said it is supplying its portable AimObserver devices to Liberia without charge as emergency assistance.

The AimObserver uses "Mobile Mapper" technology to produce an instant latitude/longitude location for any dwelling, structure or pathway at any point in the world.

"This is the right technology at the right time to assist Liberia and other West African countries in getting the current Ebola crisis under control," said Michael Olsen, company chairman.

The devices will be able to provide accurate information on the location of victims, and clinics, and will help identify outbreak trends.

Information on the number of devices being donated was not disclosed.
