"On June 28th, we held a special WebEx from the Geospatial Preparedness Committee. Discussion focused on the unusual number of natural disasters that have occurred this year have and continue to plague federal, state and local resources. In addition a National Level Exercise (NLE) was conducted, an earthquake scenario surrounding the New Madrid Fault.
Geospatial data and related technologies has played a valuable role in supporting these events and exercises. A panel of presenters discussed the challenges, the role of geospatial data and technologies as well as lessons learned. They included:
· DHS NLE After Action – Noah Goodman and David Alexander
· Kentucky NLE – Kenny Ratliff
· Arkansas Flooding – Learon Dalby
· Tuscaloosa Tornado – Mike Vanhook
· Joplin Tornado – Tony Spicci
· Q and A
The recording of that WebEx is now available at https://nsgic.webex.com/nsgic/lsr.php?AT=pb&SP=TC&rID=21360782&rKey=0dbd65d5ce2cc26f&act=pb "
