A Common Operational Picture (COP) is

[a] continuously updated overview of an incident compiled throughout an incident’s lifecycle from data shared between integrated systems for communication, information management, and intelligence and information sharing. The common operational picture allows Incident Managers at all levels to make effective, consistent, and timely decisions. The common operational picture also helps ensure consistency at all levels of incident management across jurisdictions, as well as between various governmental jurisdictions and private sector and nongovernmental entities that are engaged.[1]

Military Edit

A Common Operational Picture (COP) is

a single display of relevant information within a commander's area of interest tailored to the user's requirements and based on common data and information shared by more than one command. This display is the result of reports, automatic updates, and overlays common to all echelons and [digital]]ly stored in a common database. The COP facilitates mission command through collaborative interaction and real-time sharing of information between commanders and staffs. This convergence of intelligence and the other warfighting functions is critical to operations. The intelligence portions of the COP are those messages and overlays relating to threats, terrain and weather, and civil considerations in the common database. This intelligence and information originate from intelligence organizations at various echelons and combat information. The G-2/S-2 ensures the common database reflects the most current information and intelligence available in order to maintain the integrity of the intelligence portion of the COP.[2]
