Public and private security organizations are increasingly coming to rely on geographical information system technology (GIS) and a variety of sources of information to help predict, prevent, investigate, respond to, and manage planned and unplanned incidents involving critical facilities.
Analysis, interpretation, and visualization of complicated fact patterns can be greatly enhanced using GIS. Integrating real-time feeds into your GIS provides even greater awareness to security personnel reducing confusion, understanding situational and mission-critical changes, and quickly identifying new problems. Successfully collecting, harvesting, and visualizing multiple sources of information then sets the stage for GIS to serve as a robust toolset for tactical, strategic, and investigative analysis.
Join subject matter experts from Esri and US Federal Government as they explain how to integrate various information feeds (structured and unstructured) with GIS to support site security, business continuity, employee/citizen safety, threat analysis, investigations, event management, and tactical response. Learn how web mapping and desktop applications, data, and tradecraft come together to help users mitigate, respond to, and recover from crime, threats, and hazards from local to global levels.
Whether protecting one facility or a global network of physical assets – discover why location intelligence is the proven platform that can unify this complex mission.
