Title Guidebook on Integrating GIS in Emergency Management at Airports.
Publication Date 2013
Media Count 134p
Personal Author D. Jividen F. Barich J. Phy M. Gartenfeld R. Agnew
Abstract The guidebook begins by discussing and defining GIS and emergency management and providing relevant terminology. Then the guidebook provides a roadmap for airports to move from their current state of GIS implementation (whether they have any form of GIS or not) to the point of integrating into emergency management and coordinating with mutual aid partners. Airports that follow the guidebook and complete the worksheets will have developed their own GIS-EM implementation plan.
