The mine action information collected and stored in IMSMA<sup>NG</sup> is useless without the ability to find it and use it to make operational decisions. That’s why IMSMA<sup>NG</sup> includes a robust data search mechanism that provides an easy-to-use, multilevel interface for building and running searches. As with other parts of IMSMA<sup>NG</sup>, the search functionality is divided into a customisation mode, where information managers can prepare simple or complex searches, and an execution mode where data entry personnel can run prebuilt searches. This simplifies the user experience and ensures consistency of use by sharing identical searches with all users. The IMSMA<sup>NG</sup> search function has three primary purposes:
• to navigate to data • to display data on the map • to prepare data for reports and analysis
Information managers can customise IMSMA<sup>NG</sup> searches for each of these purposes to meet the specific needs of the programme. Particularly, customizing the search functionality to facilitate access to programme data and reporting is a key component of implementing and managing a programme’s information workflow.
