Blue Toque Software designed and built the web service YourLo.ca/tion a while back, and it became useful just a few weeks later on a search, assisting a local SAR group in locating a group of missing hikers. Since then SAR groups from around the world have been using the service and offering feedback.
We are happy to announce the new and improved version of the service. We re-built YourLo.ca/tion from the ground up as a Microsoft Azure web site. This means the service is now backed by a mission critical cloud-based architecture. Written entirely in c# and using cutting edge technologies such as signalR, Entity Framework, jQuery, and Bootstrap, the service is responsive, durable, and available.
SAR groups and other emergency responders need to reply on their infrastructure. YourLo.ca/tion is a demonstration of the techniques Blue Toque software uses to achieve reliable software for first responders.
