The Next BIG Thing for your Video Management System - GEOSPATIAL AWARENESS

CCR  |   Control rooms  |  Vision & Future  |  2016-03-04

Everything is going geospatial…Twitter, Google, Facebook, Pinterest. Although it may manifest itself under other names: geo-intelligence, GEOINT, map-based, geo-referencing, geo-analysis, these are all terms referring to the concept of geospatial. In security terms, geospatial refers to WHAT happened and WHERE it happened, and it’s the role of security professionals to understand how it can help make critical perimeters and facilities more secure.
