Overview of the TNP for Groups

TNP for Groups is designed to be deployed during large-scale search and rescue operations, environmental cleanups and multi-state conservation projects with teams using with their mobile devices to collect and visualize data. TNP for Groups synthesizes and displays collected data to speed in-the-field decision-making and creates a digital record of all field activity.

TNP for Groups seamlessly integrates powerful desktop mapping software, a cloud connected mobile data collection platform (compatible with all GPS-enabled iOS and Android devices), and a robust Web portal. TNP for Groups users can plan projects in the office, collect data in the field and access projects from the Web—simultaneously. Geo-referenced data such as tracks, waypoints, photographs and video can be shared, updated in near real-time and displayed on the included topographic, aerial/satellite or street base maps. Individual team members are permitted to view and manipulate data, and to locate fellow team members in the field or from the office.

Organizational Structure

  • The purpose of the organization is to create a structure to assist in segregating the projects appropriate to geography, territory, or other arbitrary collection suitable to the customer.
  • From the web interface, the customer’s administrator can manage users, teams, devices, licenses and, subscriptions.
  • Users of the system can also manage their own information that provides the customer complete self-management of their TNP resources.

Primary Components

Organizations

  • Once a customer purchases an enterprise configuration, they are provided with a web portal to manage licenses, privileges, users, teams, and projects for their business.

Desktop Client Licenses

  • A desktop client license provides one user in an organization the ability to install the PC product on one primary computer and one backup computer for a specific state or region. Customers can purchase additional states that can be installed on any computer with a valid desktop client license.

Mobile/Web Users

  • Each organization is automatically granted 5 mobile/web users for each desktop client license purchased. One of these mobile/web users must be assigned to the desktop client. However, that desktop client user will also be able to use the web or the mobile too. Additional mobile/web users can be purchased in bundles of 5.

Additional States

  • If a specific desktop client requires more than one state/region, additional states/regions can be purchased and assigned to a specific user that already has a desktop client license.
Teams & Team Tracking

What are Teams?

  • Teams are a collection of users that belong to an organization and can be entirely self-managed by the organizations administrator
  • The team list is used to provide a means for TNP desktop, mobile clients, and the web site to segregate content in such a way that clutter is averted and information is shared only with those who need access
  • Any user can belong to one or more teams providing maximum flexibility for data access

What is Team Tracking?

  • The Team Tracker module is built in to Terrain Navigator Pro Enterprise and provides valuable safety information for search and rescue teams, firefighters or anyone else who needs to know where workers are in the field at all times.
  • In order to use the team tracker feature, your computer must be hooked up the internet and the people in the field need to be using the TNP mobile app in cellular coverage. The locations of your team members are automatically tracked and plotted on Terrain Navigator Pro’s maps in near real time. Team members can also transmit short messages or activate an SOS feature.

quotes Team Tracker worked very impressively this evening on a small search mission- very effective in efficiently directing searchers in the field to the lost parties and following their return to mission base.”
