They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Every dispatcher and call taker knows this to be true and, since the advent of aerial imagery, maps and pictures have been enabling 9-1-1 PSAPs to improve response times, precisely locate callers, identify structures and communicate surrounding hazards to support first responders and emergency managers around the globe. What if this same level of coordination and in-depth, visual situational awareness were also available inside structures as well?
This webinar will discuss new advances in interior, three-dimensional imagery available to support the situational awareness and operational effectiveness of both telecommunicators and responders in the field. Experts from EagleView (the company behind Pictometry) will explain the technology behind interior mapping solutions, highlight public safety use cases, and discuss the integration of existing aerial imagery or GIS with interior, three-dimensional imaging capabilities. Stop in for this live webinar to learn more about this emerging technology and its implications and opportunity in the public safety landscape!
During this 60-minute webinar, attendees will:
- Better understand the pros/cons of the various types of imagery (both high- and low-tech) currently available to both telecommunicators and responders
- Learn about the practical applications of interior mapping/imagery for public safety operations
- Learn about the technologies used to create interior maps and three-dimensional imagery
- Have the opportunity to ask questions with industry and technical experts
