Coordinate dispatch, AVL and desktops leveraging your investment.
Creating a geofile for your
dispatch system from your mapping system just became a whole lot
International Computer Works, Inc. (ICW) is an add-on application
module that works with Mapinfo Professional and ICW map editors.
After your map has been updated with the ICW map editing utility,
you create a grid table with either the native MapInfo tools or
if you choose to use the US Bureau of the Census TIGER/Line Files
as your base, you may use the block tables as the grid. The assignments
for police response, fire response, EMS, ambulance, animal control,
and any other agency are maintained as attributes to each grid.
Through the use of the grid, you can manage any changes to assignments
or modification to jurisdictions.
developed to provide a means for agencies to use GIS data (principally
street data) developed by local departments such as county or city
GIS departments with which to build a geofile. The goal of this
strategy is to minimize the mapping effort that might otherwise
be required on the behalf of the dispatching agency and be positioned
to use updates from the original authoring agency when available.
The grid can be built using the development
tools in MapInfo Professional or from externally provided data,
but in either case must be constructed to align with the geometry
of the road network.
