Emergency and Disaster Management

When a disaster strikes, knowing what you need and how to find it can be the key factor that saves lives, resources, and critical infrastructure. Esri can help you with all phases of emergency management, from developing mitigation plans to managing limited resources and prioritizing recovery efforts once the dust settles.


Eliminating Information Blind Spots

When a catastrophic earthquake occurs, Central United States Earthquake Consortium relies on GIS mapping software to understand the situation and coordinate response efforts. Critical information—such as damage assessments and evacuation zones—delivers a new level of intelligence when shared via real-time maps.


Better identify and prioritize potential threat levels and develop comprehensive plans for evacuations and containment.


Intelligently dispatch first responders, optimize supply routes, and direct limited resources.
