GeoDecisions, an information technology company specializing in geospatial solutions, has unveiled a new mobile mapping interface within its Rapid Response System™. A high-powered alert notification system, Rapid Response includes web mapping capabilities that enable users to save alert areas directly from a high-resolution map.
“The new Rapid Response mobile mapping module reinforces our anywhere/anytime philosophy,” said Jonathan Greiner, project manager with GeoDecisions. “It provides the full functionality of our existing web mapping interface on virtually any smartphone or mobile device.”
Mobile mapping provides access to high-resolution aerial imagery and street maps combined with Rapid Response property point locations. Users can define affected areas in an emergency with precise buffer and polygon drawing tools and send more than 120,000 phone, email, or text message alerts during internet or power outages.
The new module can also zoom to a current location or specified address, filter map results, save and open drawings, and change base maps (aerial or street view). Mobile mapping property information includes resident or owner names, addresses, and phone numbers.
Rapid Response advanced mobile mapping functionality integrates existing GIS data layers that can be accessed in real-time from Esri® ArcGIS Server or ArcGIS Online (AGOL) technology. End users also have the ability to define feature attributes displayed for each layer.
Rapid Response System’s mobile mapping interface is the latest enhancement to a proven emergency response tool. In 2012, Rapid Response was recognized with an Honor Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies of Pennsylvania (ACEC/PA).
