Subject: RE: Re-vitalization of GIS SC
Just a reminder that there will be a GIS SC teleconference tomorrow to kick off discussions regarding possible changes to CAP etc. These potential changes would be based on implementation experience (see below).
The dial-in information is:
Wednesday August 29, noon (12) EST. 1 512 225 3050 passcode:36429#
The following is from Ric Skinner:
With what we learned during CWID 2007 and the suggested improvements to the CAP capabilities to handle spatial data I wonder if the GIS SC should be reactivated to consider enhancements to this area of CAP. For example, we noted that points, lines and routes could not be included in a CAP message. These were considered essential basic graphic capabilities for managing the disaster response and requesting/responding to support and assets. Also, in some scenarios we thought it would be valuable to identify potentially impacted populations (e.g. general public, nursing home residents, schools, in a hazardous plume, etc.) by using a plume footprint to identify population attributes contained in various databases. Some of these same, and other, spatial data concerns should be considered in the HAVE and RM standards as well.
If the GIS SC is reactivated, I would like to be part of the discussions.
