GIS Mapping


Geographic Information Systems (GIS) encompass the scientific and technological tools that analyze and integrate data to create maps and other illustrations of information which can be used to make planning decisions. The ability of GIS to simultaneously map the location of at-risk populations, community resources, and potential hazards can be extremely valuable to emergency preparedness planning for vulnerable populations.
