GEWI Adds CAP For Emergency Notification
From the earliest days of the TIC Software (known then as TMC Office), GEWI software was designed to distribute traffic data to navigation devices.

GEWI’s most recent addition to the TIC Software is the Disaster Warning Product feature which can collect warnings in the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) format.

CAP allows a warning message to be consistently disseminated simultaneously over a wide range of warning systems.

As a TISA.org member, GEWI supports the development of the new TPEG application, Emergency Event Warnings (EAW), which will be used to distribute the CAP warnings and alerts to navigation devices.
