  1. Evaluation of Emergency Response GIS Solutions

  2. Presenters • Steve Thompson • Introduction • CATS • CAMEO • Hong Su • Autodesk • Accela • Jeff Bourdier • E Team • MapTooL • Conclusion

  3. 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.” Source: http://www.esri.com/industries/public_safety/

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. Consequence Assessment Tool Set (CATS)

  7. Realtime – Roadblock information CATS - Hazard Prediction and Assessment Capability (HPAC) Catastrophic Natural Event Prediction

  8. Computer-Aided Management of Emergency Operations - CAMEO

  9. CAMEO Interface

  10. CAMEO Scenario 1: • Train Derailment: Train containing benzene has derailed and several tank cars have caught fire and are releasing benzene gas

  11. ALOHA modeling

  12. Evaluation of Autodesk

  13. 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

  14. Autodesk 3D Viewer Autodesk Detail CAD Drawings Autodesk Mapping Building Footprint

  15. Evaluation of ACCELA

  16. Components of Accela Emergency Response Solution Accela Land Management • Capture detailed information on a building or structure • Attach and retrieve CAD drawings, photographs, and other document files Accela GIS • Maximize time in the field during the response • Automate map analyse and append map layers Accela Wireless • Perform Rapid Damage Assessment • Real-time Data updates from the field

  17. Accela GIS Viewer

  18. Evaluation of E Team

  19. E Team Screen Shots

  20. Evaluation of MapTooL

  21. MapTooL Screen Shots

  22. Conclusion • Good general solution: E Team and CATS • Good low-cost alternative: CAMEO • Autodesk • Pro: CAD interface • Con: Complexity (modules) • MapTooL • Pro: Ease of use • Con: Cost • Accela generally weak
