Why gis

Why GIS?

“GIS technology gives public safety personnel the ability to manage and analyze large amounts of location-based information. Data (including files from legacy systems) can be stored in a geodatabase and used to visualize spatial relationships and reveal trends critical to public safety response and planning. Computer-generated maps can be shared across a network or the Internet with multiple agencies to coordinate efforts and maximize resources.”

Why emergency response

Why Emergency Response?

"Preparing communities to respond to bioterrorist threats or events is a top priority in our country right now. With GIS as a core component to this solution, the immediate impact will be to make GIS an integral component of the day-to-day operations of public health and public safety organizations.”

Bill Davenhall, Health Industry Solutions Manager, ESRI

Project goal

Project Goal

  • Identify emergency response software package that best fits the needs for a medium sized city (Arlington, TX)

    • Evaluate off-the-shelf emergency response software applications and tools

    • Assume that no GIS-based emergency response system currently exists

Cameo scenario 1

CAMEO Scenario 1:

  • Train Derailment: Train containing benzene has derailed and several tank cars have caught fire and are releasing benzene gas

Evaluation of Autodesk

Three main components of autodesk emergency response model

Three Main Components of Autodesk Emergency Response Model

Administrative - Training and preplanning are done in this phase

  • Autodesk Pre-Plan

    Tactical - Refers to the “first responder” activity that takes place on the scene of an emergency

  • Autodesk Mobile Command

    Strategic - Refers to the management of a disaster, which often takes place in an emergency command center away from the actual sit

  • Autodesk Crisis Command 2
