Using GIS and CAMA Data to Support Emergency Management
Monday, March 19, 2018

Instructor: Kevin Mickey, GISP, Director of Professional Development and Geospatial Technology Education, The Polis Center, IUPUI, Indianapolis, IN

Communities are often faced with significant economic and social risks from natural and man-made disasters. In order for emergency management professionals to effectively prepare for and respond to these events they need to have an accurate understanding of the built and social environment, including knowledge of where buildings are located, how they are constructed and how they are used. This workshop will provide guidance and hands-on activities that reveal why CAMA and parcel data, combined with the capabilities of GIS, are valuable for addressing this need and what the key steps are to ensuring that this data is effectively applied.

Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop with them to the workshop in order to better participate in activities. Instructions for setup will be provided in advance of the workshop.

The workshop will offer insights about challenges and best practices identified from past and current attempts to apply CAMA and parcel data in support of hazard mitigation, response and recovery objectives. These insights will be supported by real examples of recent projects that have occurred or are being developed in Georgia, Indiana and many other states and communities where tools and workflows have been implemented that apply CAMA and parcel data to support the GIS-based analysis of potential impacts from floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornados and other hazards along with identifying ways to mitigate those impacts. The instructors will help participants understand what CAMA data elements are critical to informing this process. They will also identify financial and political incentives for developing collaborations that lead to the effective collection, application and sharing of CAMA and parcel data resources.
