|Public safety, emergency services and defense
GDi GISDATA has more than 16 years’ experience of meeting customers’ requirements for spatial data management in public safety, emergency services and defense.
Geography plays an important role in policing and crime analysis. Response capabilities often rely on a variety of data from multiple agencies and multiple sources. The ability to access and process information quickly while displaying it in a spatial and visual medium allows authorities to allocate resources quickly and more effectively. In the “mission-critical” nature of policing, information about the location of a crime, incident, suspect, or victim is often crucial to determine the manner and size of the response.
GIS takes the traditional statistical information used in crime analysis and places it on a map, showing specific crime patterns and relationships. And, like crime mapping, associating non-emergency service calls and non-criminal incidents on a map, assists managers and supervisors in placing manpower in areas where they are most needed and at the ideal time.
Emergency services operate in a dynamic and complex real world. The need to know where, when, why and how to take action ensures that situation awareness enhances the success of all operations. Since nearly all information is related to a location – “where is the incident?”,” where are our resources?”,” how do we get from A to B?” – it is the knowing “where”, by spatially relating the total set of information that enables enhanced situation awareness to be achieved.
GDi GISDATA developed, put into full operational use and is providing support for Computer Aided Vehicle Tracking & Dispatching System (CAVT&DS) with the prime goal of enhancing and improving emergency medical service in the Zagreb metro area. System is developed using ESRI technology and is running around the clock, enabling dispatchers to locate and dispatch the nearest available emergency medical vehicle to the incident location.
Our defense team combines its extensive product knowledge with first-hand experience of the defense environment to recommend solutions tailored to the requirements of the defense customer. While ESRI GIS software provides a host of powerful tools for managing and analyzing spatial data, not every requirement can be met “out of the box” and experience has shown that some defense applications can be particularly demanding in this regard. GIS application development team can carry out any necessary customization, localization or extension of the core ESRI products to deliver quality-assured, low-risk and affordable solutions to such user requirements.
