What is IMSMA?

IMSMANG is an information management system designed to support the complex information management needs of the mine action community. Core elements of IMSMANG include a MySQL database for storing and tracking mine action information and the various relationships among the data, a geographic information system (GIS) for analyzing and displaying geospatial information on maps and a reporting tool for generating reports of the data stored in the system. Its client-server architecture enables stand-alone installations to support small programmes with one or two users as well as networked installations for large programmes with 50 or more users distributed across multiple sites and organisations. Additionally, IMSMANG can be paired with several supporting components that directly interact with the IMSMANG system. Designed with flexibility to support a range of uses, IMSMANG can also be customised by individual programmes to suit their changing information management needs. This includes defining the type of mine action data to store in IMSMANG and the relationships among the types, the forms used to enter the data into the system and the workflows that match the current or desired information model. So, significant attention must be paid when setting up and customising IMSMANG to support a programme’s information management needs and to get the most out of the system.
