DATAMARK, the public safety geographic information systems (GIS) team of Michael Baker International, announced today a significant expansion of the company’s ongoing partnership with RapidDeploy, the leading cloud-native solution provider for public safety. DATAMARK’s indoor mapping solution, INSIDE, is now integrated into RapidDeploy’s Radius Mapping solution, a Next Generation 911 (NG9-1-1) primary call-taking map that is trusted by local, regional and statewide agencies to improve 9-1-1 call outcomes. This integration provides unprecedented situational awareness and safety for first responders through the power of indoor maps.

“Through our partnership with RapidDeploy, we are marking a new era in emergency response and setting a new standard for public safety operations,” said Robert Murphy, ENP, RPL, Interim Director for DATAMARK. “The integration of DATAMARK INSIDE with RapidDeploy’s Radius Mapping solution is a game-changer, offering enhanced situational understanding that can save lives.”

DATAMARK INSIDE is a cloud-native application that allows users to create, interact with and manage valuable indoor data for use in dispatch centers, emergency response and facility management. DATAMARK INSIDE is built on Esri’s ArcGIS Indoor Data Model, ensuring that user data meets industry standards and best practices.

With DATAMARK INSIDE, RapidDeploy’s Radius Mapping solution now offers real-time visualization of floor-aware, geospatially-enabled indoor maps, providing 9-1-1 telecommunicators with a single pane of glass workflow while facilitating faster and more accurate responses to emergencies. The integration affirms that every stakeholder, from Emergency Communications Centers to school security administrations to field responders, has access to the critical mapping data necessary for effective emergency response.

“By integrating DATAMARK INSIDE with our Radius Mapping solution, we are enhancing the precision and effectiveness of emergency response operations,” said Todd Komanetsky, VP of Strategic Partnerships at RapidDeploy. “This collaboration ensures that schools and first responders have access to critical indoor mapping data, enabling them to make informed decisions swiftly and to build on our mission of saving lives by reducing response times.”

The collaboration between DATAMARK and RapidDeploy demonstrates the power of strategic partnerships in advancing public safety technology. As leaders in their respective fields, the two companies have integrated their expertise to deliver a solution that not only improves emergency response outcomes, but also enhances school, venue and building safety through advanced mapping integration.
