The FDNY used LinksPoint’s mobile data solution to automate the process of locating and recording information that was critical during the stages of rescue, recovery and investigation at the WTC. The FDNY Recovery System employed ruggedized handheld computers, LinksPoint GPS receivers and LinksPoint’s Field Data Collector(TM) software to collect accurate location information for items and human remains collected at the site. All of the data recorded by FDNY firefighters using LinksPoint’s solution was uploaded to a central GIS database for analysis and investigation of the attacks. The handheld solution also enabled the FDNY to complete their duties more safely and efficiently, and give a more accurate representation of the disaster site.
