CaGIS/ASPRS 2013 Specialty Conference
October 27 - 31, 2013 * San Antonio, Texas USA
Click HERE to Submit Your Abstracts Online

The conference theme:
Imaging and Mapping for Disaster Management:
From the Individual to the Global Community

asks the critical emergency preparedness questions:

Where did the event occur?
Where are people in relation to the event?
How fast/far/in what direction is the event moving?
Where and by what route can people (and animals, supplies, relief workers, and aid) come into or leave the area of an event?

The critical component necessary to answer all of these questions is accurate, current geospatial information. And that’s why we need YOU!

Relevant Topic Areas for Abstracts:
This conference will explore the wide range of tools, technology, and applications employed to prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies of local, national, and global scales.
  • Humanitarian GIS/volunteered geographic information/citizen science/social media
  • The role of commercial, licensed imagery and data in emergency response
  • GIS preparedness from a community, national, and international perspective (city/county government; national (DHS, NGA); Red Cross, OSM, Tsunami Warning System, Global Seismic Network)
  • Emergency Response applications/examples – what works, what doesn't
  • The role of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) in emergency response.
  • The role of sensor networks in emergency detection and response (GEOSS)
