Life 1st GIS

— Geolocating for the Operative Room

Locating with speed and precision

When every second can make a difference, it’s crucial to locate the emergency with clarity and precision. A map with immersive cartography, complete with the list of vehicles, unities and points of interest is the key to always find information and all resources needed. Beta 80’s Life 1st GIS, together with its integration with Waze, has been developed to work together with the operator to understand the exact caller’s position and to always send the right means of transport, thanks to a complete and intuitive interface.

A unique interface for all cartographies

Beta 80 has developed Life 1st GIS, a platform showing a series of static and dynamic cartographic layers, locating services and real-time information. Everything, just on one system. Life 1st can:


  • Visualize the caller’s location data (GPS coordinates, AML, eCall, localization on triangulation cells, etc.)
  • Visualize all current events, POIs and resources, with real-time movements (AVL)
  • Geo-code addresses
  • Real-time calculate the route to the event location, basing on a complete street map
  • Integrate traffic data and accidents in real-time, with Waze
  • Integrate What3words location service
  • Use all main maps formats (TomTom, OpenStreet Maps, Google Maps and Google Street View)
  • Use informative layers in shapefile, WMF, WMS formats and many more
  • Use our user-interface designed according to UCS (User Centered Design) standards for a simple, intuitive and productive fruition.

Reducing rescuing times with Waze

Thanks to 100 million users worldwide and their reportings, Waze – Google’s street navigation app – allows visualizing blocks, road works and accidents in real-time. Taking advantage of the integration of this app with Life 1st GIS, Beta 80 offers a responsive and perfectly optimized route planning.

Finally, thanks to a partnership between the European Emergency Number Association (EENA) and Beta 80, Waze contributes to reducing the reaction time in emergencies. The project, launched in Lombardy, sees all accident reported by Waze users in the region to be directly communicated in real-time to the 112 Center, thanks to a CAD integration. Then, rescuers use Waze to get to the destination as soon as possible, while other users in the area are made aware of the event. The project, first completed in the USA, leads to a reduction of the reacting times of almost 4.5 minutes.
