ITspatial's InterSCOPE(TM) Technology Presented to President George W. Bush and Governor Tom Ridge in DC Command Center

    Washington, D.C. - President George W. Bush and Homeland Security Advisor Tom Ridge joined DC Police Chief Charles Ramsey in a tour of the Synchronized Operations Command Complex (SOCC) at Metropolitan Police Department headquarters at 300 Indiana Avenue, NW. Ramsey showcased ITspatial's InterSCOPE(TM) system as the centerpiece of the state-of-the-art command center complex, displaying a real-time three-dimensional map of the entire city of Washington, DC for the President and his advisors.

    "This is a city with a lot of complex issues," said President Bush. "It's a city where a lot of people come to exercise their right as Americans, and we appreciate that. And I'm proud that this city is able to allow people to express themselves, and at the same time, maintain order. Mr. Chief, you and your troops do a fabulous job here."

    Bush and Ridge were impressed with the technology deployed in the SOCC. Said the President, "Every city should look to Washington D.C. as a model" for the use of advanced technology in emergency operations.

    The tour of the Command Center was part of President Bush's efforts to promote the newly approved Department of Homeland Security. "The new department will work, of course, with our state and local authorities to avert attacks, to plan for emergencies and to respond," Bush said. "We've got to make sure our first responders are well equipped and trained and organized for their duties. You do a fine job here in Washington. There are some places that need help, and the new department will help first responders."
