USGS Emergency Response Fact Sheet

This past summer, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) released a new fact sheet that is a compendium of the most popular online geospatial resources for the Emergency Services Sector.  The resources covered are typically appropriate for use during the recovery, mitigation and preparedness phases of the Emergency Management cycle, however some are also applicable to the response phase.  The following topics are covered:
  • Earthquakes,
  • Floods,
  • Hurricanes,
  • Landslides,
  • Tsunamis,
  • Volcanoes,
  • Wildfires,
  • Terrorist attacks, and 
  • Accidental oil spills.
Go here to get the fact sheet.
