GIS in Action at the Incident Command Post
Track: Disaster and Emergency Management
Authors: David Runneals
GIS is a very valuable tool, but only when people know how to use it. From this session, you will gather knowledge on how to build pre-disaster datasets (i.e. building footprints & critical infrastructure/facilities layers) for the ICP/EOC and implement simple GIS solutions in the ICP/disaster site so non-GIS people, such as the planning section chief, at the ICP are able to bring Geospatial Intelligence to the Incident Commander to allow the best decisions to be made.
