The Travel Console's Country Intelligence page provides admins with easily accessible safety information for locations throughout the entire world. On this page, admins have Nightime, Physical, Women's, and LGBTQ+ safety scores at their fingertips. In addition to this, a quick search provides other information such as a risk assessment, political conditions, potential security issues, travel logistics, cultural factors for consideration, contact details for local emergency services, crime information, and any health advisories for the location.

Searching for City Intelligence
Below the map, you can use the search bar to open location intelligence for available cities. Simply type in the name of the city and a menu will appear of city names suggested by Google. Select the city, and any available location intelligence will load below the search bar.
Understanding Travel Console Intelligence Icons
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 righthand corner of the intelligence panel, admins can view the location's DOS level, AlertTraveler® Alert Severity Rating, and CDC rating.

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 simply 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:
