New Emergency Alert System Unveiled in Torrance
1. Multiple Map Views
MassAlert™ enables multiple map views linking, providing an important advantage to the operator by viewing spatially related content side by side.
Maps can be synchronized together so that they can be used simultaneously to illustrate any required scenario. A primary site map drives and coordinates all the other views linked to it.
For example, the primary site map might show the location of all outdoors sirens and buildings with indoor systems. When a designated building is clicked, the view will navigate to that building’s floor plan displaying the location of the indoor alert units.
To improve the visual viewing, the maps layout can be arranged so that each can be seen on separate physical displays (dual displays being popular) or they can all be seen on the same display MassAlert™
