The new series of features that have been introduced seamlessly integrate with WebEOC’s existing software to offer improved workflows and better data visualization.

    The new easy-to-use map-based interface, gives users the ability to leverage several useful tools that make navigating and analyzing operational impacts much simpler. Users can quickly view and edit board points, and draw lines, circles or polygon shapes on the maps they create to highlight and identify areas in need.

    “Customization and self-services capabilities have become critical necessities when it comes to the utilization of maps in crisis situations,” said John Heinen, senior vice president of emergency preparedness solutions at Intermedix. “Our clients now have access to mapping solutions that give them more control, better visibility and allow them to more effectively coordinate response activities during urgent situations.”

    The new mapping capability is now a standard offering when current users upgrade to WebEOC 8.3. Those who need even more advanced and all-encompassing mapping abilities can chose to upgrade to the Maps Add-On functionality. The Maps Add-On offers modern, cutting-edge tools that allow users to create an unlimited number of maps, apply custom icons to correspond to their organizational or industry standards and manage various map layers to better control how various information and external data is being consumed.

    The Maps Add-On will also leverage and support the Esri ArcGIS mapping technology that has been integrated with WebEOC through the ArcGIS Extension for WebEOC.

    Through the Maps Add-on, WebEOC has the ability to consume published Esri Map and Feature services, and will lay the groundwork for enhancing the ArcGIS Extension by integrating new data types and features, such as creating lines and polygons, into the product’s functionality once it has received the appropriate upgrades.
