Materials Available: 2015 Search & Rescue GIS Workshop

On November 12th through the 15th the National Alliance for Public Safety GIS Foundation brought together more than 60 of the Nation’s Search and Rescue leaders and GIS professionals for the 7th annual Search and Rescue GIS Workshop.

The workshop was a great success for all participants and for the SAR community nationwide. The workshop featured 1.5 days of hands-on training, field exercises, training on US National Grid (USNG) for SAR, keynote addresses, and actionable discussion forums. The workshop resulted in a series of recommendations that inform the development of a National Strategy for the Use of GIS in SAR.
