Common Operating Picture
Events happen with real people dependent upon and interacting with real resources such as vehicles, personnel, critical infrastructure and community support systems. Making sound operational decisions requires a Common Operating Picture (COP) system. ViewPointe’s Common Operating Picture is critical in supporting the situational awareness needs of your Mission.
DHS has documented more than 1,000 sources of trusted and authoritative data sets used for the Homeland Security Mission. ViewPointe COP technologies can now rapidly aggregate your existing key data sources, enabling them to become more efficient in supporting your Mission and avoiding duplication of effort.Read More
Complete, accurate and up-to-the-minute situational awareness is essential for emergency responders and others who are responsible for controlling complex, dynamic systems and high-risk situations. Inadequate or absent situational awareness is cited as one of the primary factors in accidents attributed to human error.
During an event, ViewPointe provides a Common Operational Picture (COP) to monitor, respond to and manage the situation. The ViewPointe COP creates broad situational awareness by combining Geographic Information System (GIS) map data with changing, real-time event data from CAD, cameras, sensors, units, GIS map services and other location data.Read More
A department strategic operations center can be used for both day-to-day operations and command-and-control for large scale emergency incidents. For daily operations, it can operate as the communications hub for all incident data. ViewPointe provides a set of common tools for use in strategic operations to plan for significant events, monitor what is happening in real time and help manage events as they unfold.
Using ESRI ARCGIS Tools, SOC personnel can create pre-staged maps and drawings for upcoming events that can be used by Incident Managers to prepare for the event, and can be updated in real-time to reflect the current situation as the event unfolds.
During an event, the SOC is part of the command structure, supporting the on-scene commanders and providing updated information through ViewPointe.Get Information
