GCN : May 2015
GCN MAY 2015 • GCN.COM 11 CATALOG.ARCHIVES.GOV Two veteran suppliers in the geospa- tial marketplace have joined forces to help improve the management and precision of the software and solutions that support public-sector emergency response. Intergraph, a longtime vendor of computer-aided dispatch technology, and geospatial and mapping soft- ware developer Esri said they plan to collaborate to “more tightly align their respective public safety response platforms.” The companies said they would combine efforts to integrate aspects of Intergraph’s computer-aided dispatch system, called I/CAD, and Esri’s ArcGIS platform to improve both systems. Computer-aided dispatch and geographic information systems are essential to public safety and incident management. Together, call-taking and dispatch software, maps and spatial data provide agencies with the information they need to provide for and protect the public. Solutions that work together enable agencies to do their jobs more quickly and efficiently. The first step of the partnership will involve integrating Intergraph’s I/Map Editor for ArcGIS. It will work directly with Esri’s ArcGIS to produce maps in I/CAD and create a more efficient workflow in both systems. I/Map Editor allows users to build and edit road networks, maintain address points, and create emergency service zones that represent the avail- able police, fire and emergency medi- cal services. Among its intelligent mapping capabilities, I/Map enables users to define configuration and legend settings, edit streets for routing, and locate map features based on ad- dresses, streets, common place names or intersections. “Esri is pleased that Intergraph has chosen to enable its computer- aided dispatch solution to work more directly with our ArcGIS Platform,” said Russ Johnson, Ersi’s director of public safety and homeland/national security. “The combined solution will benefit the computer-aided dispatch market, the public safety GIS community and citizens around the globe.” • Partnership to enhance GIS tools for public safety BY MARK POMERLEAU 0515gcn_006-012.indd 11 4/30/15 12:35 PM
