This article may reference Continental Mapping, GISinc, or TSG Solutions. These three legacy companies merged in January 2021 to form a new geospatial leader.

We've recently participated in a GovLoop webinar titled "Emerging Technologies for Smart, Resilient Installations and Facilities.

GISinc's Steve Mulberry rounded out the training with a direct prescription for getting started. "You need to ask the right questions," said Mulberry. Simple enough, right? 

Here are some questions to get you started on your journey to leveraging GIS to make your installation, facility, community, or city more resilient:

  1. What are you monitoring?
    • Ideas: People, Fixed Assets, Mobile Assets, Location Based Sensors

  2. Is wayfinding and navigation required (blue dot)?
    • Ideas: Indoors, Outdoors, Campus Setting 

  3. What level of positional accuracy do you need?
    • Ideas: Relative, Proximity, Something Better

  4.  How often do you need a signal or information?
    • Ideas: Real-time, Something Less

  5.  What can your facility support?
    • Ideas: Wi-Fi, BLE, VLC, Video, RFID, etc.

  6. What security does your organization require?  
    • Ideas: HIPAA, FISMA, FedRAMP, etc.
