FEATURED IN PUBLIC SAFETY COMMUNICATIONS
St. Cloud, Minn. -- GeoComm announces the official release of GeoLynx 9-1-1 Server, a Web-based tactical dispatch Geographic Information System (GIS). This dispatch mapping system is distributed across public safety networks providing users with secure access to a Common Operating Picture (COP) of the jurisdiction's geography and real-time public safety activity. GeoLynx 9-1-1 Server seamlessly connects PSAPs, responding agencies, and mobile responders, increasing their ability to gather and share information, strategize, plan, mitigate, track, and respond to emergencies. This offering also leverages emerging NG9-1-1 ESINets for application delivery and sharing, and provides NG9-1-1 additional data display.
Built on ESRI ArcGIS Server and the ArcGIS Silverlight API, GeoLynx 9-1-1 Server can map live 9-1-1 calls, CAD calls for service, and Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) and sensor telemetry. GeoLynx 9-1-1 Server provides a secure browser based public safety tactical GIS to users without requiring heavy installation and on-going synchronization of software and data on individual client computers.
"GeoLynx 9-1-1 Server is the third generation of web mapping from GeoComm, and exciting because the technology and performance now provides fluid real-time 9-1-1 dispatch mapping in a distributed application ideal for delivery across NG9-1-1 ESINets. 9-1-1 Server is the third application in our suite of public safety tactical GIS applications that now includes focused apps for desktop, mobile, and server environments," John Brosowsky, Product Development Director at GeoComm.
GeoLynx 9-1-1 Server has tools for:
- Browser-based tactical GIS mapping
- Mapping live feeds for 9-1-1, CAD, and AVL
- Live “mapped ALI” for 9-1-1 call-takers
- Hazardous Materials mapping and modeling tools
- User markup and drawing collaboration tools
- Hyperlinks to network cameras
- Role-based user authentication based on roles
- Supports WMS and GeoRSS
- Available crime mapping, and emergency notification add-ons
Benefits provided by GeoLynx 9-1-1 Server include: streamlined application installation, maintenance, and data synchronization cutting out individual workstation touches, fast high quality mapping and GIS that can be shared across multiple PSAPs and ESINets, and a common situational awareness created for all users of the system.
