GIS for Homeland Security



"Building on the lessons of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina — which, [Mike] Kataoka writes, "have validated GIS as the technology of choice when seconds count and lives and property are at risk" — the book examines the gaps in coordination among bureaucracies with overlapping mandates and jurisdictions. ... Much emphasis is on the ways in which planning and preparedness can prevent some catastrophes and mitigate the effects of other ones."
