Overview: TNP for Teams (Multi-User Configurations)

TNP for Teams is designed to be deployed during large-scale search and rescue operations, environmental cleanups, and multi-state conservation projects with teams using their mobile devices to collect and visualize data. TNP for Teams synthesizes and displays collected data to speed in-the-field decision-making and creates a digital record of all field activity.

TNP for Teams seamlessly integrates powerful desktop mapping software, a cloud-connected mobile data collection platform (compatible with all GPS-enabled iOS and Android devices), and a robust Web portal. TNP for Teams users can plan projects in the office, collect data in the field, and access projects from the Web—simultaneously. Geo-referenced data such as tracks, waypoints, photographs, and video can be shared, updated in near real-time, and displayed on the included topographic, aerial/satellite, or street base maps. Individual team members are permitted to view and manipulate data, and to locate fellow team members in the field or from the office.

Organizational Structure

  • The purpose of the organization is to create a structure to assist in segregating the projects appropriate to geography, territory, or other arbitrary collection suitable to the customer.
  • From the web interface, the customer’s administrator can manage users, teams, devices, licenses, and subscriptions.
  • Users of the system can also manage their own information, providing each customer with complete self-management of their TNP resources.

Primary Components


  • Once a customer activates two or more subscriptions for the same organization, they are provided with a primary account to manage licenses, privileges, users, teams, and projects for their business.
  • Each user subscription includes access to desktop software, mobile applications, and web applications to use interactively between these platforms to match the task at hand.

Desktop, Mobile, and Web

  • Two installations (a primary and a backup) of the PC desktop client are available to each named user in an organization. Map data is licensed by the state (or region in Mid Atlantic and New England states.) Additional states can be added to the licensed area.
  • In addition to the desktop software, each named user has access to mobile and web applications.
  • If an organization has two or more subscriptions (in the same account) then the Team Tracking and sharing features are automatically enabled when users across all three TNP platforms (PC desktop, mobile app, and web portal.)
  • The desktop software has a robust set of mapping features; the web portal and mobile apps are designed for quick viewing, limited editing, and navigation/data collecting in the field.

Additional States

  • If a specific desktop client requires more than one state/region, additional states/regions can be purchased and assigned to a specific user that already has a desktop client license.
Team Tracking

What are Teams?

  • Teams are a collection of users that belong to an organization and can be entirely self-managed by the organization’s administrator.
  • The team list is used to provide a means for TNP desktop, mobile clients, and the website to segregate content in such a way that information is shared only with those who need access.
  • Any user can belong to one or more teams within the same organization providing maximum flexibility for data access.

What is Team Tracking?

  • The TNP for Teams functionality is built into Terrain Navigator Pro and provides valuable safety information for search and rescue teams, firefighters, or anyone else who needs to know where workers are in the field at all times.
  • TNP for Teams functionality is automatically enabled when an organization has two or more user subscriptions.
  • In order to use the team tracking features, the PC base computer must be connected to the Internet and the teammates in the field are using the TNP mobile app in a cellular/wifi coverage area. The locations of your team members are automatically tracked and plotted on Terrain Navigator Pro’s maps in near real-time. Team members can also transmit short messages to each other or activate an SOS feature.
  • Users on both the mobile and the desktop have the same near real-time visibility to any team member’s location (including the base station desktop if an external GPS accessory is attached.)

quotes Team Tracker worked very impressively this evening on a small search mission- very effective in efficiently directing searchers in the field to the lost parties and following their return to mission base.”
