Maintaining situational awareness through the use of editable data fee
Track: Web Mapping
Authors: Robert Shankman, GISP
As mobile data and the need for more timely and accurate information has evolved, it has become more evident that data feeds may not always answer the data need for situational awareness. HHS has implemented several different methods of data acquisition in order to reduce the gap from real world and what the feeds report. In concert with “live” data feeds, the editable data from HHS to include sources such as facility status and deployed staff are now able to be displayed in a view from within the web application (MedMap) allowing the decision makers to have a more complete view of what is in the field.
