Geospatial Preparedness

The Geospatial Preparedness Committee meets every other month to discuss real-world GIS use and how it is applied during events while encouraging geospatial data sharing, application development, testing, and usage in support of emergency management, law enforcement, and security operations to promote preparedness to communities as a whole. Specific committee topics include real-world presentations on the use and/or integration of GIS during disasters, promoting GIS best practice discussions, federal/state GIS data coordination, federal resource documentation, and general committee work.

  • April Geospatial Preparedness Committee Meeting Canceled

    The GP Committee Leadership decided today to cancel the April Committee Meeting due to the covid-19 pandemic world-wide and the current emergency response happening in the United States. We will assess the situation at the end of May and determine then if a June meeting is possible. Thank you all for the critical work you are doing. Be safe and stay healthy.
