Remote Sensing and Incident Support at DHS

Last week, the National Alliance of Public Safety GIS (NAPSG) hosted a webinar given by Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Remote Sensing Advisor Chris Barnard, and FEMA Geospatial Information Officer Chris Vaughan.  Stated goals for the event were:
  • Familiarize participants with the principles of remote sensing,
  • Solicit thoughts and recommendations from participants on ways to expand the use of remote sensing for incident response, and
  • Provide participants with information where Federal partners publish remote sensing data during emergency incidents.
NAPSG has graciously made the event slides available for download/viewing.  Use the link below:

Comment: From all appearances, a very nice effort by these gentlemen and NAPSG. Although the nation still has a long way to go, progress is clearly being made.
