Public safety

Improve emergency response with rich visual data

Cyclomedia provides rich visual and spatial intelligence for emergency and rescue services. Fast response times are crucial for all emergency situations. The use of street-level data provides situational awareness. A remote visual check helps determine priorities, work responsibilities, safe and fast access routes for emergency services and the equipment required. It’s an important aid in planning the most appropriate and effective response in cases of an emergency.

Expedite emergency response with detailed imagery

In a control room every second counts. As soon as an alert comes in, it’s essential to have insight into the exact location of the alert and the immediate surroundings as quickly as possible. Cyclomedia data provides the valuable insights that control rooms need. 

For example, when a fire is reported, the property is mapped with detailed information about the building. Questions such as: “Where are the doors?”, “How is the building constructed?” and “How many floors are there?” can be answered immediately. In addition, valuable information about the entire affected area is available. All information can be used to determine the required resources for the emergency.

Access routes are mapped out, in order to optimize the accessibility for emergency services (fire department and EMT). Emergency services can be informed immediately about potential dangers and obstacles at the location. This reduces response times to a minimum and saves lives.

Deploy police efficiently with street-level details

Thorough preparation is crucial for any police task. Information about the location and the immediate surroundings is extremely important. A situation can be explored and assessed remotely with Cyclomedia imagery online. 

Street-level GeoCycloramas capture all relevant, detailed information in public spaces including lampposts, benches, mailboxes, traffic lights, and waste containers. These details are valuable to tactical and strategic planning operations, field investigations and CrimeStat reviews.

Increase security at public events

Public safety and security is crucial to large public events. Many moving parts have to be considered. For this reason, police services use imagery early in the process of preparing for an event. Visual information about the location of the event, including street level images and LiDAR point clouds are an important aid in deciding how to best deploy emergency services and crowd management.
