Survey of care lifeguard chairs, towers and first aid bases

An important part of the project involves carrying out a census of the equipment that is deployed on the beaches during the summer season. In this way, the lifeguard chairs, towers and first aid bases of each of the beaches of the Catalan coast will be counted.

All the elements will be photographed and georeferenced in order to obtain a map of the regional rescue service. In order to carry out this task, softwares such as Google Earth and Applications such as GPS camera will be used.

The technician's task is to walk each of the beaches and record each of the elements described using a research data notebook.

Analysis of the information

Once the data collection is completed, there will be a precise map of the facilities deployed for the surveillance of bathers. These maps will make it possible to obtain references of the density of equipment by beach and by municipality, their distance in relation to the user and analyze their effectiveness.
