Materials Available from the National Geospatial Preparedness Summit

On August 4 and 5, 2015 the National Alliance for Public Safety GIS (NAPSG) Foundation brought together more than 150 of the Nation’s public safety leaders and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) professionals for the inaugural National Geospatial Preparedness Summit.

The Summit was a resounding success. Participants travelled home to their agencies equipped with new skills that they tested through incident simulations and concrete ideas and strategies for institutionalizing the application of location-enabled decision support tool and data. The Summit also brought to light new and emerging issues such as Next Generation 911 (NG-911) that pose both opportunities and challenges in applying GIS across the public safety and homeland security enterprise.
