Susan Smith, editor of GISCafe, writes “When a disaster happens, the role of GIS and geospatial is front and center in the identification of location and the location of individuals impacted in the event, as well as the clarification of the physical damage to vital structures. It is also fundamental to the provision of medical care and utilities during a time when those things may be scarce or non-existent.”

Pictometry Disaster Response Program offers immediate flights after an emergency or disaster, allowing users to view damage quickly in support of rescue, recovery and assessment efforts. Read the full article here.
