Population and Housing Census, Ghana, 2000
In 2000, GAP supplied Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) with six scanners, to scan 11m A3 forms. It took three months for this volume to be scanned. With a summary record sheet from 27,000 numerators, giving an accurate account of the field papers, a population count was achievable in hours from the start of scanning.
The data from the A3 forms was captured using OCR and OMR character recognition, to give the GSS the results of the census. The data was then posted into a database for query and result processing. Over the three month period, GAP solution software will process 1.65bn OCR & OMR captured fields and translate data to the database for querying. All images were supported on a 700GB RAID with DLT backup. The results allowed the GSS to run queries against the database to assist Ghana with long-term planning, funding and wealth distribution on national projects, an invaluable tool for "Good Housekeeping".
Spy In The Bank, Tanzania
SIT-B (Spy In The Bank) fights fraudulent attacks against banks. The solution was developed for a bank suffering misappropriation of accounts. Users of SIT-B gain an important tool in their fraud prevention armoury, the ability to discourage fraudsters through the publicised use of the Spy in The Bank.
The bank had been targeted by insiders with administration access to the system. On several occasions the bank’s system had been taken down by the protagonists and amounts of over $250,000 were being removed electronically from the system. By the time the system was up and running again 2 to 5 days later, the money had been replaced. The SIT-B solution secretly linked encrypted code directly into the bank’s own software. Once the access was set up, SIT-B was able to link to a supplementary server, mirroring the activity of the six administrators who entered the system on a daily basis. The link delivered a listing of unusual activity directly into the ORACLE query fields, giving instant tables of unusual activities. By also monitoring activity on CCTV, it was possible to collect the evidential information.
