A-Z Map data incorporated into the advanced operational system MOSAIC

Geographers’ A-Z Map Company is thrilled to be demonstrating the application of our Street data in the cutting edge of innovation within Mission Support Systems – MOSAIC (Mission Optimised, Situational Awareness, Information & Collaboration) by Airbox Systems at the Emergency Services Show 2016 at the NEC.

MOSAIC is built upon a highly efficient mapping engine that stores encrypted, optimised maps and charts on the device itself. Onto these layers of mission relevant data is built a powerful multi-role tool that can be used by pilots, ground operators and commanders in the Ops Room to better their situational awareness.

Co-founder of Airbox, William Moore said about A-Z Maps map data “Airbox Systems and our customers love A-Z mapping for its clarity and overall cartographic quality. Our customers use these maps in emergency services roles; The ability of users to glance at a map and instantly recognise it has a very high value in fast moving situations where safety is at stake.”
