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.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
