Just the facts

As government budgets tighten, law enforcement organizations are looking for technologies which allow them to more quickly identify and respond to public safety threats. Using Oracle Database and Oracle MapViewer, the City of Toronto Police Services worked with Angus GeoSolutions Inc. (AGSI) to leverage Go360 Social Media Edition software to search, review and map social media traffic in real time. By mapping this streaming content, public safety officials can more quickly isolate, identify and respond to incidents, thereby enhancing public safety.

In this webinar you will learn

  • How to collect big data, like social media, and geotag it for mapping
  • How to map geotagged data to quickly identify incidents
  • How to search geotagged data for research and analysis

More details

Attendees will see a demo of AGSI’s Go360 Public Safety & Security Suite used by Toronto Police Services to search all publicly posted messages from organizations such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Flickr and others.  The Go360 platform uses the latest HTML5 capabilities of MapViewer.  The platform maps the location of messages sent and identifies the senders. Safety officials can use the data collected to help solve crimes, as evidence in court, to identify potential witnesses, or respond to natural disasters and other emergencies. This unique solution was recently used by all New York area police agencies for monitoring social media feeds to assist in responding to incidents “live” at the Super Bowl. It is also currently used throughout the Caribbean to ensure safety for tourists visiting the islands.

Speakers

Michael Jander, Chief Security Officer, AGSI
Carol Palmer, Principal Product Manager, Oracle MapViewer

Who should attend

CIOs, IT directors, programs managers, chiefs of police, and any government officials who need to quickly identify and respond to public safety threats
