NEON Command

NEON Command is a remote 3D visualizer where commanders can view 3D tracks of their team. It also includes a 3D mapping tool to create building models.

The primary functionality for NEON Command is the creation of building models, which allows for 3D tracking and improved 2D tracking for users. The Building Editor documentation outlines all of the tools available for creating a building and the Complex Building Tutorial provides a walk-through to create some of the most complex structures.

Beyond building modeling, NEON Command allows users to view tracking sessions. Personnel Trackers can view their tracking sessions either in real-time or in a historical view. Signal Mappers may open Signal Maps to view or generate an automated report in a variety of formats. NEON Command displays more information than is available on a NEON app’s view, such as path history, error, and all of the signal information for Signal Mappers.
