TrueVector Technologies today introduced a web-based, interactive drawing solution for Emergency Responder web mapping software intended for use by federal, state, and local governments, and other Emergency Responder organizations.
The first deployment of the technology is by Defense Group, Inc. (DGI) of Vienna, Virginia, which has signed a strategic reseller agreement with TrueVector Technologies. DGI will market this drawing solution as part of its CoBRA WEB Mapping within the CoBRA Crisis Management and Emergency Response business unit. The applications for CoBRA WEB mapping are numerous. DGI will initially target Fire Departments, EMS organizations, Bomb Squads, HAZMAT teams, and Police Departments as a situational awareness tool to assist in the collaboration of first Responders and Emergency Operation Centers.
CoBRA WEB mapping will allow users to quickly develop situational awareness by viewing all essential information on a map, down to street level detail. It provides a common operating picture, where emergency personnel can log in and collaborate on a single universal map, which can be viewed and updated in real time to reflect changing events on the ground. Users of the map can draw and markup incident information from anywhere, saving time, minimizing property losses, and protecting the safety of personnel and the general public. The system has been designed to easily track assets and resources as data is automatically fed into a map from the incident site as well as reach back assets and command centers.
