A geographic information system (GIS), or some times referred to as a geospatial information system is a system for capturing, storing, analyzing and managing geographic data and associated attributes which are spatially referenced to the earth. Mobile mapping is the process of collecting geospatial data from a mobile vehicle, typically fitted with a range of photographic, radar, laser, LiDAR or any number of remote sensing systems.

Such systems are composed of an integrated array of time synchronised navigation sensors and imaging sensors mounted on a mobile platform. The primary output from such systems include.

Christopher Vaughn, the geospatial information officer for FEMA, and Adrian Gardner, the chief information officer for FEMA, were those individuals stepping up to the task at hand. They understood getting better data faster and putting it into geospatial context held the answer. Once done that would be the foundational layer.

In the world of emergency management, it is important to know who and what is, or potentially could be, impacted by a disaster. The Center for GIS at Towson University recently developed a new Impact Analysis Tool for the Maryland Emergency Management Agency’s (MEMA).

This tool provides on-the-fly analysis to users of MEMA’s current interactive web .
