History Channel documentary on World Trade Center attacks features LinksPoint?s GPS technology

Norwalk, CT (August 28, 2002) – LinksPoint’s mobile data solution, used by the Fire Department of the City of New York during rescue and recovery efforts at the World Trade Center disaster site, will be included in the History Channel’s upcoming special documentary, WORLD TRADE CENTER: RISE AND FALL OF AN AMERICAN ICON, which is scheduled to air on Monday, September 2 at 9:00PM, ET/PT. More information on the program is available at http://www.historychannel.com/wtc/

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.
