The purchase is aimed at facilitating law enforcement and rescue work. Enforcement officers are using XMap 5.0 software to access and distribute critical GIS data layers for use in the field.
XMap 5.0 has already been deployed successfully to help with an investigation of hunting law violations and the search and rescue of a lost hunter. In both cases XMap provided field access to essential data including aerial imagery, land use and land cover, elevation for 3-D terrain modeling, and property boundary layers. XMap’s integrated GPS support and data collection capability allowed the agency’s officers to make full use of their GIS in a mobile situation.
“As a wildlife manager for the Colorado Division of Wildlife, I have been using DeLorme computer mapping products for many years,” said Rick Basagoitia (Monte Vista office). “I have found, and continue to find, new ways to use XMap to help me better manage Colorado’s wildlife resources. Having the right equipment makes all the difference”
