Special Events Management System

Special Events Management System is a project from Scottsdale, Arizona.

Local IT Innovation of the Year

With more than 1 million people visiting the Waste Management Phoenix Open, the world’s premier golf tournament, the Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale became a city within the city each day of the event. Scottsdale’s IT and GIS team developed an innovative digital map application showing the real-time location and status of the first responders on site. When every second counts, the application helped public safety command staff to dispatch the crews nearest to each incident, and provided first responders in the field with advanced maps of the venue so they can find the quickest path to those in need.
