A common operation picture (COP) is a continuously updated overview of an incident compiled throughout an incident's life cycle from data shared between integrated communication, information management, and intelligence and information sharing systems. The goal of a COP is real-time situational awareness across all levels of incident management and across jurisdictions.
The Common Operating Picture Systems and Tools in Action Application Note is a limited distribution document, and is available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
