R&D: Using data to simulate journeys

[Image showing each time an asset reports in (every three minutes) along a route. The different colours represent different assets.] We’ve been doing a lot of R&D around tracked movement in the last few weeks. It can be hard to develop, test and demonstrate a journey without good simulated data. You need data to be able …

A faster way to annotate security information on maps

Analysts are often asked to present security information on a map, usually in relation to an area of operation or interest. Creating annotated map images in powerpoint can be fiddly and time consuming. We are in the process of building an image editor to cut down the time it takes to create annotated maps that …

Planning journeys in frontier markets: exploring the applications of routing algorithms

We’ve been doing some R&D work on the application of routing algorithms and wanted to share our progress. We’re interested in using routing algorithms to help identify the safest journey along a given route. Usually routing tools provides the shortest or quickest route from a starting point to a destination. To create a route, a …
