GeoComm Providing Indoor Maps Offering, a Key Element of Public Safety Location Intelligence™
GeoComm, a leading provider of public safety GIS systems, is excited to offer Indoor Mapping services aimed at empowering law enforcement, fire, and medical responders by providing a visual representation of indoor spaces for key buildings in their response areas.
In order to improve situational awareness and reduce response times, emergency responders need more detailed information about the facilities to which they are responding. An address point on a map with no additional structure information provides little location context about indoor environments that first responders must enter into every day. Indoor maps are the next level of precision mapping information, providing detailed Public Safety Location Intelligence™ to 9-1-1 call takers, dispatchers, and first responders.
“Indoor maps are the key to unlocking the life-saving potential of new and emerging mobile phone positioning technologies that otherwise only provide raw numerical measurements and are not actionable to real-world users in PSAPs, ECCs, and in the field responding to emergencies,” John Brosowsky, Vice President of Innovation at GeoComm.
GeoComm indoor maps provide the following information:
- Building footprints, with exterior entrances clearly defined
- Interior rooms and spaces identified by name/number, and color coded by type
- Locations of elevators, escalators, stairs, and interior doors clearly identified
- Additional point locations for public safety relevant features inside buildings such as AEDs, fire extinguishers, fire risers, and security cameras
