Today is GIS Day around the world and it has been a very busy year. I am here at ICCM 2013 and learning a lot about what everyone is doing in the CrisisMapping community.
Most recently the Philippine typhoon and MidWest tornadoes have GIS specialists across the globe working in conjunct with the CrisisMapping community to support response agencies.
Here are some examples of maps being produced for the Philippines response:
- GISCorps Philippines Typhoon Online Maps
- MapAction Map Gallery
- Digital Humanitarian Network Map Gallery
I'd like to recognize the great work of the GISCorps and MapAction this year and look forward to the building bridge we have built between the SAR and GIS professional community.
