Standard Operating Guide Templates
NAPSG Foundation makes available a suite of GIS Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) Templates that provide a set of guidelines for coordinating geospatial emergency response efforts. These guidelines are intended to serve as a shared foundation, encouraging improved communication and collaboration amongst GIS and other emergency management staff preparing for and responding to incidents. Provided below is a list of the existing SOP templates with links to each:
- Quick Guide to NAPSG’s SOP Templates
- GIS Standard Operating Guideline & Template for Incident Management & Coordination
- Incident-Specific SOP Template Supplements
Agencies are encouraged to modify content in the templates to accommodate local and regional specific details. How these guidelines are implemented will depend on the organization and the level of government responding to the incident. In the future NAPSG will be enhancing the template to provide additional tools that aid agency-level implementation. Stay tuned!
