Cloud-native SaaS product enhances location intelligence for indoor incident response
Santa Ana, CA /PRNewswire/ - DATAMARK, the public safety geographic information systems (GIS) team of Michael Baker International, announced today the release of Inside, a new cloud-native Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution designed to enhance indoor location intelligence and enable mission-critical decision making in real-time during public safety incident response. Inside software is powered by Esri, a global leader in GIS technology, and allows users to create, interact with and manage valuable indoor data for emergency dispatchers, first responders and school safety personnel.
Inside product features include:
- Enhanced location intelligence in 2D and 3D: Inside software operationalizes indoor data by creating a common operating picture for facility, school and public safety stakeholders. It allows users to visualize buildings in 2D and 3D to garner spatial awareness and enhance emergency planning capabilities.
- Smart floorplans for safer futures: Users can increase locational confidence by applying Inside software to update, manage and visualize accurate, up-to-date indoor mapping data. Additionally, users can collaborate with other agencies and public safety departments to ensure location intelligence is available when needed the most.
- Precise indoor incident location: Inside software allows users to access authoritative indoor mapping data, enabling first responders to collaboratively plan time-sensitive entry and exit routes through an accessible user interface, efficiently access data about equipment, such as automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and fire extinguishers, and locate incidents with accuracy.
"We know that many incidents happen inside, yet for most facilities, indoor mapping data is either unavailable or completely outdated," said Ashley Buzzeo, Associate Vice President of Product at DATAMARK. "Our team spoke to hundreds of clients about the gap in indoor intelligence and was inspired to develop a product to meet this need in the public safety community. We created Inside software as a solution that takes highly accurate data beyond the front door of a facility and into the hands of responders and stakeholders."
Inside software has the power to create safer spaces and peace of mind for building occupants by integrating highly accurate indoor data with tools to facilitate effective exit planning, easy access to emergency assets and improved incident response.
