arrow_upwardWhy RavenGIS™
Digitized Disaster Reporting
Ditch the paper methods and leverage the Internet of Things to streamline disaster/incident reporting within your community; while enjoying fast and thorough reports and speedy documentation for damage assessors.
Common Terminology
Colorful legend and Federal Geographic Data Committee standardized map symbology (ANSI 415-2006 compliant), provide a quick glance of 'real-time' disasters and incidents occuring in your community. Location coordinates utilizing United States National Grid (USNG) standardizes location marking, allowing for easy and automated conversion to lat/lon and physical addresses.
