Real-time maps drive efficiency in New York City

When a complex city aims to improve its operational intelligence, managers and other decision-makers need a real-time view of assets, resources, and people. Management tools like smart maps and dashboards show relevant city data in context of location for shared visualization and accurate analysis. Backed by a geographic information system (GIS), these location intelligence tools bring together data from disparate sources so officials can see what’s happening now, predict what will happen next, and plan a response.
