June 28, 2007 -- Longview, TX – Geographic Technologies Group, Inc. (GTG) announced today that the City of Murrieta, California has procured software and services from GTG. The City of Murrieta had previously chosen GTG to implement LGdispatch and LGmobile to integrate open databases with GIS, thereby providing an integrated platform that will enable City personnel to leverage existing public safety based data and applications. The City has recently chosen to upgrade its existing LGdispatch and LGmobile software to LGcommunity connect.
LGcommunity connect is a GIS software solution that allows both HTE Land and Public Safety users to integrate AVL with LG software. The software allows GPS enabled vehicles to be tracked via the GIS interface. It takes GPS data from vehicles and places a moving map symbol on the GIS map interface that corresponds to the vehicles location in the real world. Historical AVL information is maintained with the product.
James Kelt, Regional Manager for GTG said, “Vehicle GPS locations are crucial to 911 dispatching. By knowing where response units are located, dispatchers and first responders in the field can greatly reduce response times thus making the City a safer place for the public and officers in the field. The Community Connect application is a highly efficient way of passing GPS locations of multiple units to the LGdispatch and LGmobile mapping interfaces.”
