Open topic with navigation
Active Operating Picture Extension for Geocortex Essentials (AOP) is a mapping application designed to provide simultaneous awareness and fast communication between incident commanders and field teams dealing with life-threatening events. AOP provides immediate, accurate, real-time data and the means to quickly communicate situation updates through a common operating view using tablets and phones. Alerts and communication channels allow collaboration between multiple team members in multiple locations. Speedy access to fast-changing information makes it possible for incident commanders to plan and coordinate with field responders so that they can manage incidents in order to protect lives and property.
AOP is a specialized map that integrates the features and the capabilities of ArcGIS Enterprise, ArcGIS GeoEvent Server, and Geocortex Essentials Manager.
