What are critical incident mapping solutions and how do they work?
Critical incident mapping solutions, which we often refer to as Collaborative Response Graphics® (CRGs), combine a gridded reference system, high-resolution imagery, floor plans, and critical features to create accurate and real-life depictions of facilities and their surroundings. By providing law enforcement and first responders with crucial information, they enhance response time and help navigate the scene efficiently.
