Presentation Transcript


GIS Application for the Delaware Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program

  • Dan Rose – Delaware Emergency Management Agency

  • Steve Stasolla – SRC Consulting


The EPZ Map


IDEA

  • Replace Laminated EPZ Map

    • Update Wind Arrow & Velcro Adherence System

  • Single Interface for Displaying Static & Dynamic data

  • Share Data & Displays Between Multiple Locations

  • Simple Operation


Integrated Response Application

Gateway for display of emergency information

  • Combine existing data sources & displays

  • Primary display mode would be EPZ Map

  • Add/remove layers from map with checkboxes

  • Menus and tabs for other functionality

    (e.g. plant diagrams, ERDS)

  • Click map to see underlying data or information

    i.e. samples, field monitoring data or restaurant menus

  • Provide foundation to incorporate future data sources


Data Layers

  • Emergency facilities –EOCs, reception centers, schools, daycare facilities

    • Facility manned/activated?

  • Sirens & route alerting

    • Siren(s) status?

  • Emergency Response Planning Areas (ERPA’s)

  • Population distribution

  • Evacuation routes, Access Control Points, bus routes

  • Transit dependent individuals/special populations

  • Agricultural database

  • Field monitoring routes & locations


Dynamic Data Sources

  • Field monitoring vehicle

  • Meteorology

  • Impacted area(s)

  • Plume - interface with dose model(s)

  • Fixed monitoring sites (7)

  • Sample database

  • Emergency worker exposure/dose tracking

  • DOE information (projections, flyovers etc.)


Implementation

  • Unsuccessful attempt with outside Vendor

    • proposed cost was a significant issue

  • Began to explore in-house options

  • Simplified proposed system – “baby steps”


DEMA Implementation

  • IT Staff already actively involved with REP Program

  • IT familiar with ARC GIS Products

  • ARC GIS Product licensing already in place

  • Additional GIS expertise available from U of Delaware


DEMA GIS

Plan: Parallel operation with

  • User Interface utilizing Google Earth

  • Assessment component with ARC GIS

  • Data shared between the two applications


Google Earth

  • Google Earth provides a simple, intuitive & familiar interface for users

  • Web based – display can be accessed anywhere

  • Free

  • Software maintained & upgraded by others

  • Limited data evaluation/manipulation

  • Pro version ($) allows direct access to data files


ARC GIS

  • Great variety of tools available

  • Provides significant assessment capabilities

  • Requires expertise to fully access features

  • User interface more complex


Current Plan

  • Develop user interface with Google Earth

  • Purchase Google Earth Pro

  • Develop databases – web based data entry?

    • Sample tracking/laboratory

    • Emergency worker monitoring

    • Agriculture & land use

  • Test & refine during upcoming drills


Future

  • Integrate real time data sources

  • Resource management

  • Field monitoring – automate data collection and transmission

  • Sample tracking via barcodes or RFID

  • Emergency worker monitoring

  • Traffic control & evacuation monitoring


Radiological EmergencyMonitoring Vehicle (REMV)

  • GM Detector Mounted on Roof

  • Air Sampling System providing real time Iodine Concentration

  • GPS Unit

  • Wireless Broadband Communication with Base Station – real time data transmission

  • 7500 watt diesel generator


Radiological Emergency Monitoring Vehicle (REMV)


REMV - Interior


Delaware Radiation Emergency Alert Monitoring System“DREAMS”

  • Seven Fixed Radiological Monitoring Sites

  • GM Detectors

  • Broadband Communication (Verizon AirCards)

  • Communication to Base Station (State EOC, Smyrna, DE)

  • Battery backup

    Expected to be Fully Operational – February 2010
