Breakout Session — Confronting Complexity in Global Disasters: Creating Unity of Effort When It Matters Most
We are increasingly becoming interconnected as a society with the internet and globalization. Internet communication has allowed for a “Whole of Governments” environment and enabled response and volunteer based organizations to support catastrophic events from afar. Spatially and temporally referenced social media communications support rapid visualization of a crisis as it develops over time and space. The map is the key to providing geospatially enabled up to date content for global first responders and decision makers to better understand the situation as it unfolds on the ground. Cloud based technology enables collaboration and mapping environments and provides cost effective ways for organizations to scale for an event, allowing spaces where near real time data can be stored and analyzed, enabling better decisions. Coupling government and commercial based systems like satellite imagery collection with the Volunteer Technical community is changing the way business is done during emergencies and disaster response around the globe.
