Use GIS for your public health preparedness strategy

In an emergency, data-driven decisions prevent or minimize the loss of lives. Maps and apps accelerate response to emerging threats and ultimately put you a step ahead of disaster. Geographic information system (GIS) technology helps you make these decisions more easily.

Mapping and location data analysis simplifies planning for disaster scenarios so you can be better prepared for any event whether natural or man-made. This software package includes everything you need to optimize your preparedness plans.
