The Esri Public Safety Symposium will make one last stop in Philadelphia to showcase the latest advances in geographic information system (GIS) technology for public safety.
National security, law enforcement, fire/rescue, emergency management, and dispatch agencies face challenges and threats that are more complex and unpredictable than ever. Through the power of geospatial technology, organizations can now adopt a smarter, more integrative approach to safety and security. With the right technology, data, people, and processes, every community can become a safe community.
