Track: Emergency Management
Authors: Cameron Bouchard
The Government of Canada’s Government Operations Centre (GOC) produces maps in a very short time frame for all manner of natural and human-induced disasters, necessitating the creation of a broad set of EM symbology.
This presentation will briefly discuss the design process used to develop the first version of the Canadian All-Hazards Symbology, currently numbering 384 symbols, used in federal emergency management mapping by the GOC.
