Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Showing how geographic information systems (GIS) technology can provide crucial and timely information and analysis to organizations involved in emergency response and homeland security, this hands-on manual is written for communities that face the threat of large-scale disasters, whether they be wildfires, hurricanes, earthquakes, or terrorist attacks.

Book News Annotation:

The use of geographic information systems (GIS) is as essential to disaster management plans as bandages and radios, argues Greene (an editor at ESRI press). He surveys some of the uses of GIS in the United States, including the use of data visualization to respond to the September 11 attacks. The various applications discussed are grouped into their uses for identification and planning, mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. Distributed by the Independent Publishers Group.
