Authors: Mark Codling, Rohan Richards
Using Arc GIS, and other IT technologies, missing children alerts were mapped as a means of enhancing the planning and recovery process, and geospatial web tools further utilized to disseminate information to various stakeholders.
It is shown that spatial tools can assist with the conduct of analyses and the visualization of trends and patterns associated with high clusters of missing children and empower the responders to make more efficient the mitigation and response exercises.
