Adapx Unveils Capturx Disaster Response Kits to Help Emergency Teams Quickly Collect and Share Information From the Scene of Disasters

SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jul 31, 2008 -- Adapx ( today introduced the Capturx Disaster Response Kits -- designed specifically to help response teams map, collect, and share data from the scene of wildfires, hurricanes, floods, or other natural catastrophe strikes. The kits are completely self-contained with a field printer, supplies, and the award-winning Capturx software that enables teams to print and mark-up paper maps with a digital pen for immediate sharing among field teams as well as command and control centers. Packaged in a ruggedized hard plastic case, the kits can be ordered online for immediate delivery to disaster sites.

"Capturx allows fire personnel to collect field data on paper maps just as they always have, but cutting out any transcription process, making it easier and quicker than ever before to base critical decisions on current data," explained Tom Patterson, wildland fire specialist at ESRI. "The Capturx Disaster Kits will be a valuable enhancement for fire crews that need to collect and disseminate critical data in a timely manner."

Each Capturx Disaster Response Kit includes Capturx for ArcGIS and Capturx for Microsoft Office OneNote software, 5 digital pens with USB docking stations, extra ink cartridges, large-format standard paper, 5 all-weather waterproof field notebooks, and a color OKI printer. Field teams can simply use the kit with their existing PCs and ArcGIS software in the field.

Capturx Disaster Response Kits: Specifically Designed for Emergency Situations

Use of Capturx software to help track and plan response to rapidly changing wildfires inspired the development of the Capturx Disaster Response Kits. The digital pen works with ordinary paper, withstands harsh field conditions, and has memory and battery life to last days in the field. The same tools that enable real-time mapping of wildfire conditions and planning, can also help in response to rapidly changing flood, hurricane, and other disasters where field information needs to be collected and shared immediately.


The new Capturx Disaster Response Kits are available today. Interested customers can send email to Email Contact or call 877-232-7903. Government customers can conveniently purchase through GSA schedule number GS-35F-0131R.

To see the new Capturx Response Kits and other Capturx products in action, visit Adapx in Booth #511 at the ESRI User Conference in the San Diego Convention Center from August 5-7.
