Comment: From experiences elsewhere, I have to believe Matt is spot on with problems he mentions in the article. In fact, taken together, his comments echo a core theme this site has been considering since inception - the inability of various response organizations to understand and effectively use geospatial technologies for disaster preparedness and response. We have a long way to go as a nation before this issue, won't be an issue...
