Geographic Information Systems in Emergency Response, Sandy and Beyond with Frank Winters

Tuesday, April 2
6:30–7:15 p.m.
Nexus Building, Room 239

Natural and man made disasters can have significant public health impacts. Our ability to understand the geography (both current and historic) of an area affected by a disaster is critical to emergency response. In New York State, Geographic Information Systems have played an important role in the response to every significant disaster for decades. This presentation will consider the historic geography of Manhattan Island in relation to the response to super storm Sandy and future resilience efforts.
