In addition, IMSMA V3 started embracing professional database platforms such as [[Microsoft SQL Server]] for its technical development. This software improved numerous aspects, from data handling being facilitated through the design of database queries, to installations into a networked environment, with an increased number of simultaneous users.
==First deployments=IMSMA v.1===__NOEDITSECTION__
IMSMA V1 was first deployed to the field in Kosovo in 1999. Information management being one focus principle of every mine action programme, the Zurich’s Institute of Technology (ETHZ) had been mandated by the GICHD to develop a standardized software tool to help process and coordinate both data and activities related to mine action. Valuable cooperation from field users resulted in the development of a new version. IMSMA v.2.2 was said to be “significantly better” as it provided among others, a plug-in to ArcVIEW allowing to view information on a map. It was with this newly developed version that IMSMA was adopted by the UN on an international level as the standard for humanitarian demining information.
