WiSAR Capability and Readiness Assessment Tool
The NAPSG Foundation Search and Rescue Working Group (SARWG) has completed an update to the Capability and Readiness Assessment Tool (CARAT)
What is CARAT? The Capability and Readiness Assessment Tool (CARAT) is a tool created by NAPSG Foundation. It is designed to serve as a roadmap for public safety officials and GIS practitioners interested in learning how GIS can be applied to the public safety mission and/or in building GIS to support their agencies’ work.
Here is the direct link to the WiSAR CARAT Tool: http://bitly.com/WiSARCARAT
This website provides links to the qualifications and tools that can be used by SAR Teams to understand what geographic information systems have to offer.
Here are some of the tools listed under 'Crawl'. All of the tools indexed under CARAT can be found in this Group.
Here is a screenshot of qualifications for Field Data Entry Technician from NAPSG Foundation's Qualification and Credentialing Website.
We are hoping for some constructive feedback in the coming weeks so we can make improvements to the site and generate ideas for training to help SAR Teams get running with GIS for SAR.
