The Travel Console's Country Intelligence page provides admins with at-a-glance worldwide safety information. On this page, admins have Nightime, Physical, Women's, and LGBTQ+ safety scores at their fingertips. In addition to this, a quick search provides location-specific information such as:
- Risk assessment
- Political conditions
- Potential security issues
- Travel logistics
- Cultural factors for consideration
- Contact details for local emergency services
- Crime information,
- Health advisories

This article contains Country Intelligence-specific information regarding:
- Access and Permissions

- Searching for City Intelligence
- Understanding Travel Console Intelligence Icons
The Country Intelligence Page can be accessed as follows:
1) Navigate to the Travel Console (Search>Travel Console)
2) From the Travel Console, click the Country Intelligence tab in the lefthand navigation bar:
Only admins in the "AlertTraveler" permission group can view the Country Intelligence page in the Travel Console.
Upon accessing the Country Intelligence page, admins will be presented with the Local Safety Map. To navigate this, admins can click and drag the map to their desired location and zoom in/out via the + and - widget located on the bottom right of the map. Alternatively, admins can use the CTRL + scroll keys to zoom in and out of locations. For a full-screen view of the map, admins can click the expand widget in the top right of the map:
For a street view, admins can drag Pegman to their desired location on the map.
Below the map, the search bar allows admins access to location intelligence for indexed cities. Entering the name of your city of choice will populate the dropdown menu with city names suggested by Google. Selecting your city from the dropdown will load all available location intelligence below the search bar.
Admins can access country and city intelligence by clicking on the desired location in the Local Safety Map, or by searching for the location in the city search bar directly below the map. Searching for the city, or clicking on the red, orange, yellow, or green dots on the map will reload the panel and display AlertTraveler®: City & Neighborhood Scorecards within the map:
The AlertTraveler® City Scorecards will also appear below the map when the Destination Overview (the default icon) is selected:
Along with Destination Overview, admins can also view local intelligence on the following topics:
|Political Conditions||Security Issues||Crime, Law & Corruption||Personal Safety||
In the upper right-hand corner of the intelligence panel, admins can view the location's Department of State (DOS) level, AlertTraveler® Alert Severity Rating, and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) rating.
Note: On October 3, 22, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced they would no longer maintain their COVID-19 country-specific list of travel notices. For this reason, Terra Dotta’s Travel Registry retired the display of CDC-COVID-19 Ratings within the Country Intelligence feature in the 22.3 release.
If the admin desires country-specific intelligence, they can search for a city within that country, and then select the underlined country to the right of the city:
This will display a country-specific intelligence panel:
