Geographic Technologies Group
GeoBlade Mobile is designed to offer mission-critical information for emergency personnel while en route to the scene of an incident. A simple-to-use, touch-screen user interface makes it easy for the user to navigate around the map and access incident information. The ability to show hotlinks from selected features on the map further enhances the situational awareness provided to the user by allowing access to such resources as floor plans, video feeds, and hazardous material data sheets. The application utilizes a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) interface and is built on Esri's ArcGIS Mobile Software Developer Kit (SDK) technology. The maps are cached locally on the hard drive and can be utilized with or without a connection to the central server. In a connected environment, updates to the maps are synced automatically, calls for service locations are live, and the locations of other emergency vehicles are displayed.
