Track: Fire, Rescue, and EMS
Authors: David Hansen
Time is a limited commodity in emergency incidents including SAR. MapSAR was designed to be rapidly deployed for an incident. Standardized datasets, templates, in a geoprocessing framework provide a basis for documentation of an incident.
Time is a critical component in that documentation.Various data sets are brought together for analysis and reporting during an incident. Python scripting can clarify relationships between data sources. This can be useful in analysis of incidents.
