Mapping

The Communications Truck is equipped with ESRI ArcGIS software for detailed mapping and imagery of Placer County. This includes low altitude photographic imagery covering the entire 160 mile length of our county. Also available is Topo and Terrrain Navigator software.

A large screen flat panel display mounted in the rear wall of the vehicle is capable of displaying any of the mapping data from the mapping computer. This screen is overlayed by a Smart Board which allows operators to virtually draw on the screen to establish search areas or notes for planning. Any of the combined image and annotation layers can be printed using the on-board color printer and distributed to team members.
