SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A U.S. company that specializes in geospatial location technology, Addressing Homes LLC (www.addressinghomes.org), has found itself in the midst of the Ebola crisis with the ability to provide mapping technology that is vital to accurately tracking the presence of victims, the location of clinics, and identifying outbreak trends. Addressing Homes is providing its technology free of charge to Liberia as emergency assistance.
Liberia was the inspiration for the location technology Addressing Homes LLC has been developing over the past seven years for the purpose of providing uniform addressing capabilities to undeveloped regions. The company has developed portable devices called AimObservers™ that use "Mobile Mapper" technology to produce an instant latitude/longitude location for any dwelling, structure or pathway down to an 8.8 foot square at any point in the world.
For countries such as Liberia, the technology allows for development of a physical address (and ultimately for a global addressing system) to enable voter registration and national ID, emergency services, postal communications and to allow tourism and commerce to formally emerge and progress.
According to Chairman Michael Olsen, "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."
Following its most recent visit to Liberia, the company has partnered with Liberian officials to contribute devices for use in identifying the location of Ebola victims and mapping patterns of occurrence as well as finding and mapping the location of the clinics that are equipped to give help.
The families of Ebola victims are placed in immediate quarantine, which they fear so greatly they are purposely disposing of the dead bodies in the street to disguise the location of outbreaks, according to published reports.
By mapping the location of outbreaks (and the location of clinics), officials in Liberia and in the World Health Organization (WHO) are better equipped to accurately identify trends and to route victims more quickly to the clinics that can provide them with help.
Addressing Homes is working on the current initiative with James Dorbor Jallah, Assistant to the President of Liberia and National Coordinator for the Ebola Response Task Force to contribute the mobile location devices free of charge; however, the executives are pleased to note that the assistance also serves to build awareness of the need and benefit for creating a global addressing system for the region as well.
In addition to supporting WHO, Addressing Homes is working to establish the patent pending Global Addressing System (G.A.S.) to support Liberia and all underdeveloped regions with consistent addressing information that can speed their progress in many additional ways such as facilitating voting, national ID, postal services and for fostering the advancement of education and commerce of every kind.
"The potential to change the world through the technology Addressing Homes has developed is on the scale of Albert Einstein's theories and Thomas Edison's discovery of electricity," said Jallah.
