LESSON 1 CHALLENGES

DISPERSED AND INACCESSIBLE DATA

 
 
  • To increase awareness of local, state, and federal decision makers of the need to maintain locally-accurate, high-priority GIS layers that will enhance effective implementation of geospatial technologies for disaster management.
 
  • To maintain, update, archive, and distribute these, as well as other confidential GIS/RS data sets (e.g. HSIP GOLD) maintained at ORNL that were acquired during the course of this project.
 
  • To determine the appropriate input data for a variety of damage estimation and simulation models; both existing and current under development for SERRI projects.
