Out of teh GeoInt event this week in Nashville, Microsoft has launched a new application/service designed to address situational awareness – Microsoft Single View Platform (SVP) go to any homeland security session or event and SA will be mentioned many times! The service boasts real time information sharing, interoperability, and mashing up information from disparate data sources. A white paper [PDF] is available from Microsoft for more. From Microsoft:
Microsoft SVP provides a single, geographic view of complex information and data sets across multiple roles, locations and user interfaces, which can vastly improve agency communication, collaboration and decision-making, and significantly increase the success of government missions.
