News 9 Unveils StreetScope Technology

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

News 9 is unveiling new technology that will put you on the scene of breaking news and weather. We are the first television station in the country to bring you exact location tracking over live video. It's called StreetScope and here's just a sample of what this mapping technology can do.

Oklahoma's high winds fuel wildfires. Jim Gardner, in Bob Mills SkyNews 9, is there, hovering overhead to give you a bird's eye view of the scene. Now, we can bring you the breaking news and weather with even greater accuracy with our StreetScope technology.

"It shows the street and the cross streets where that fire is located," said Gardner.

With this new advanced mapping technology, we can pinpoint the exact location of the fire over real time video and more.

"We can pin around that fire and tell the firemen how many acres are burning right now," Gardner said.

In this recent fire that burned northwest of the metro, StreetScope estimated more than 50 acres burned. We can also track how fast it's moving to give those who live nearby plenty of warning.
