GeoConnections Releases Canada's Emergency Mapping Symbology (EMS) version 1.0
Over 200 emergency mapping symbols are now available for use in geospatial products that will help provide common understanding of emergency situations and improve information-sharing.

The symbols are tailored to Canadian requirements for situational awareness, first response, natural hazards, public alerting and critical infrastructure. The Emergency Mapping Symbology is free to use, share, modify and extend without restriction.
