Grassroots Infrastructure Dependency Model: An Overview
Track: Disaster and Emergency Management
Authors: Carmella Burdi, Scott Schlueter
Join us for a discussion of a new geospatial model that helps emergency managers assess the operational status of critical assets in real-time based on their infrastructure dependencies and pre-determined coping strategies. We’ll start with a basic overview of infrastructure dependencies and then demonstrate the ways in which these can be visualized within a geospatial environment. We’ll conclude with a discussion of how this information can feed decision-making within an emergency ops center.
