GIS is used extensively by emergency services for protection and prevention and response
Geographic information is a vital strategic and operational resource for helping police, fire, ambulance and other rescue services operate effectively.
Emergency services are using Cadcorp SIS either directly or as component of an application in the following strategic and operational activities:
|Command and control||Emergency planning|
|Incident recording||Routing analysis|
|Risk modelling||Hot spot mapping|
|Performance reporting||Incident support mapping|
|Vehicle tracking||Resource Scheduling|
|Community fire safety||Web mapping|
|A-Z mapping||Mobile data logging|
|Asset management||Workload modelling|
Map fading really makes point data stand out. This is relevant as station managers are starting to use the webGIS to look at their incident data month by month and adding screenshots to reports.

WebMap 9 has gone down well, even with people who don’t particularly like change. The search functions have particularly taken a weight off as frontline staff can perform data interrogations on-the-fly.
