The power of nature to produce economic and social devastation has been demonstrated far too often in the past few years. As floods, earthquakes, fires, and other natural hazards continue to impact the communities where we live the importance of having data and tools such as GIS to understand and mitigate risks is becoming ever more important. During this webinar you will learn about creative ways that GIS is being applied by federal, state and local emergency management researchers and practitioners in support of hazard identification, risk analysis, and communication. The presenter will also offer suggestions for steps that can be taken to better leverage state and local data to inform emergency management processes.
