 To correctly project a 'shape' file onto the GIS module's NAD83 map display a companion .prj projection file may be needed.
Copy the  NAD83MapProjectionFile.prj  file to the same name as the shape-file.

  'Incident Commander Pro' - Typical System Requirements

 CPU & RAM: The 'Incident Commander Pro' software will operate quite well on any computer that runs at 2GHz with 512MB RAM or greater. As the program has many graphic-based features faster speeds and more RAM are always beneficial.

 Hard Drive: The program requires about 100MB of hard drive space once installed. A similar amount of free space should be left available on the hard drive after installation, for the program to create temporary files while it is operating.

 Monitors:  'Incident Commander Pro' benefits greatly from the use of a reasonably large display screen - to display as much mission information as possible. A dual monitor system is recommended to display 'Incident Commander Pro' forms on one monitor and the GIS map display on the other monitor.

 Network Card: If the software is to be run over a local network - strongly recommended for most missions - then the computer will require a network card.

 Preferred Operating Systems: Windows 7, 8 & 10.
Compatible operating systems: Windows 98,  Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8 & 10, 32-bit and 64-bit Windows Server 2008.
Install
Microsoft .NET Version 4.5.1 (for Consumers)  or Version 4.6  & Visual C++ 2008 SP1 (for the GIS module) if these default Windows programs were not already installed (e.g. for Win XP, 32-bit Windows Server 2008).
