For this paper, you will write about the importance of surfacing key information on a map in the Emergency
Management environment / EOC. What information should politicians, responders and EM’s have at their
disposal to make quick disaster declaration decisions?
Using the subjects, we have studied so far:
Emergency Management and Large Data (Module # 2), Social Media (Module # 3), Radio and Satellite
Communications (Module # 4), GIS (Module # 5) write a paper that discusses what information EM would want
to be able to surface in the EOC and on a GIS map to help with the damage assessment, disaster declaration
and assistance requests.
Answer these Questions:
1.) What are the different ways that you think data could come in?
2.) What types of technology are involved?
3.) How do we represent this information on the map?
4.) How do we use that information on the map to communicate with our senior elected officials and others
about the severity and scope of the situation?
5.) Can you build this kind of situational awareness without technology?
