Do you want to use maps to find missing persons? Do you have some skills or an interest in creating geospatial decision support tools for Search & Rescue teams?
Paul Doherty, Chair of the Search & Rescue Working Group for the NAPSG Foundation, led a virtual workshop for the Montana Association of Geographic Information Professionals (MAGIP). While MAGIP participants attended on-site (Bozeman, Montana), MAGIP kindly extended the invitation to the Public Safety GIS and SAR Community to attend via WebEx.
This presentation had brief hands-on exercises and learning resources that you can take away with you from the workshop. The goal of this presentation was to foster exchange between the Geospatial Professional and Search and Rescue Communities by providing an overview of capabilities with geospatial decision support tools.
