GIS Mapping

The easiest way to leverage the power of GIS mapping for effective emergency management.

GIS Mapping seamlessly integrates powerful mapping capabilities into your emergency management workflow. Leveraging Esri ArcGIS base-layers, our GIS Mapping offers satellite imagery, street maps, geocoding, clustered visualizations, annotations, and image overlays. When you start a new channel, the location set on the Situation Report is pinned to the map, and all other location fields throughout the channel feed back to the main map. Visualize incident locations, track resources, and monitor the evolving situation on an interactive map, enabling informed decisions and effective coordination across your organization.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the GIS Mapping feature in D4H?

    The GIS Mapping feature in D4H provides interactive maps with Esri ArcGIS base-layers, allowing for satellite imagery, street maps, geocoding, clustered visualizations, annotations, and image overlays. It enhances situational awareness and incident management.

    How does GIS Mapping work with Situation Reports?

    When you start a new channel, the location set on the Situation Report is pinned to the map. All other location fields used throughout the channel, such as in tasks or on status boards, also feed back to the main map, ensuring a comprehensive view of all relevant locations.

    What can I use the drawing tools for?

    The drawing tools can be used to mark areas of interest on the map, such as:

    • An area of flooding
    • An evacuation area
    • Pinning a Last Known Point
    • An area that has been destroyed
    • Pinning a Staging Area
    • Marking a road or rail line that is closed

    Can I display tasks and status boards on the map?

    Yes, you can display tasks and status boards on the map. This allows you to see the location spread of tasks and the distribution of status information across the event or incident.

    Can I customize the map view?

    Yes, you can change the basemap or add custom basemaps. You also have the ability to add weather layers to the map, providing additional context and information for incident management.

    What weather layers are available?

    The available weather layers include temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, pressure, precipitation, cloud cover, and visibility. These layers can be added to the map for enhanced situational awareness.

    How does GIS Mapping improve emergency and crisis management?

    By providing a visual representation of the incident, D4H GIS Mapping allows you to quickly assess the situation, identify potential risks, and make informed decisions about resource deployment and tactical operations.

    Can I use the map to track the movement of my team members?

    No, currently you cannot track the location of personnel and equipment on the map in real time.

    Can I create custom map annotations?

    Yes, you can add text, symbols, and drawings to the map to highlight important information or communicate with team members.
