Live Earth Features

Features and Tools

Live Earth has a number of features and tools that help you visualize and effectively pull out the information you need. The platform is built with an intuitive interface that requires little or no training. Borrowing concepts from your smartphone and tablet, like pinch-to-zoom maps and an interactive DVR-like timeline, using Live Earth feels much like recording and playing back your favorite TV shows at home, only with the added power of real-time data visualization and analysis.

High-Speed, Real-Time Alerts

Find Out First by configuring alerts using a set of rules relating and tracking any combination of data within Live Earth. Designated parameters filter out unrelated data and send the user notifications via text, email, on-screen or their preferred combination. Incidents generated from alerts are stored chronologically with event details for easy access to relevant situations. Real-time alerts are recorded as they happen for future analysis.


Interactive Timeline

Go back in time days or months almost instantly with the Play, Pause, Rewind feature. With the ability to render data almost immediately, easily reconstruct historical and relevant events by rewinding on the timeline. Pause the feed to process a situation from different angles for deeper understanding, and use “Loop” to watch in a specific time bracket. Return to the real-time feed by pressing the “live” button.

Visualize Critical Information in Real Time

Live Earth displays all the data feeds you choose, simultaneously, in real-time.

Route Planning

Plan travel routes for vehicles and track their locations while also defining departure times and vehicle features for the fastest, safest route. The route weather forecast feature gives predictive route optimization based on weather related road conditions during your planned trip.

Video Wall

Combine multiple video feeds into one view, allowing a group of video feeds to be reviewed in context with each other by dragging and dropping your live feeds into the video wall. Name and save your customized walls for organization and quick access.


Integrate indoor mapping of your building and toggle easily between the different floors for a consolidated view of your infrastructure.


The share and record features allow you to publish content out of Live Earth through screenshots, shareable links, and videos.


Draw, highlight, and annotate directly on the map. Use Live Earth as your presentation tool. Leverage live, interactive data with drill down details when briefing decision makers.


The shape tool allows you to draw geometric shapes anywhere on the map. These shapes can be used to set up geofences, which are used to define boundaries and generate configurable alerts.


Create a shortcut of any event in time or location on the map for fast access. The option to save visible layers and map location makes jumping to a specific place or time easy and quick.


Type the desired location in the search bar on the upper left to jump to any global location immediately, with real-time data rendering almost instantly.


Measure the distance between any two data layers displayed on the map by tapping the locations on the map and see it in your preferred unit of measurement.

Base Maps

There are four different base maps to choose from: Road, Hybrid, Aerial, and Night. Toggle easily between views by selecting your preferred base map and see it render instantly.


See 2D images on a 3D map for a combined view of assets in both spaces. Switch the map from “Top-Down” to “Pitch & Rotate” and visualize your buildings, assets, and more in a 3D plane.

Live Insights

Build multiple charts and view them in tandem with the charting feature. Dynamic charts change to reflect the data represented on the screen. You can also use shapes to create boundaries for charts and get data only within the designated area.

Live Layers

Quickly and easily turn live layers on and off to focus your attention and visualize the most relevant data. Access “add layers” to include or remove integrations from the layers panel.


With Webex, team members can start conversations, videos, and audio calls in Live Earth, removing the need to jump between screens. Share live instances with your team and communicate quickly and effectively while visualizing the situation.
