1 Evaluation of Emergency Response GIS Solutions

2 Presenters Steve Thompson –Introduction –CATS –CAMEO Hong Su –Autodesk –Accela Jeff Bourdier –E Team –MapTooL –Conclusion

3 Why GIS? GIS technology gives public safety personnel the ability to manage and analyze large amounts of location-based information. Data (including files from legacy systems) can be stored in a geodatabase and used to visualize spatial relationships and reveal trends critical to public safety response and planning. Computer-generated maps can be shared across a network or the Internet with multiple agencies to coordinate efforts and maximize resources. Source:

4 Why Emergency Response? "Preparing communities to respond to bioterrorist threats or events is a top priority in our country right now. With GIS as a core component to this solution, the immediate impact will be to make GIS an integral component of the day-to-day operations of public health and public safety organizations. Bill Davenhall, Health Industry Solutions Manager, ESRI

5 Project Goal Identify emergency response software package that best fits the needs for a medium sized city (Arlington, TX) –Evaluate off-the-shelf emergency response software applications and tools –Assume that no GIS-based emergency response system currently exists

6 Consequence Assessment Tool Set (CATS) GIS PlatformUtilizes ESRI ArcGIS 9 with Spatial Analyst Extension ApplicationsNatural Disasters, Fires/Explosions, Toxic Releases, Bioterrorism FunctionalityReal-time hazard display and analysis, Emergency response planning, Evacuation planning, Real-time response when used in conjunction with E-team Models and Databases ALOHA (Areal Locations of Hazardous Atmospheres) – Dispersion Model, DTRA – HPAC Suite Over 150 databases integrated UsersLocal Emergency Planning Committee, First Responders, Response Center Personnel SupportSAIC – Developer website, User-forums, FEMA, EPA CostsArcview bundle ($2500) plus cost for CATS, software is free but $650 per seat for technical support and training.

7 CATS - Hazard Prediction and Assessment Capability (HPAC) Realtime – Roadblock information Catastrophic Natural Event Prediction

8 Computer-Aided Management of Emergency Operations - CAMEO GIS PlatformUtilizes its own mapping tool MARPLOT (Mapping Application for Response Planning and Local Operational Tasks) ApplicationsFires/Explosions, Toxic Releases, Bioterrorism FunctionalityReal-time hazard display and analysis, Emergency response planning, Evacuation planning, Models and Databases ALOHA (Areal Locations of Hazardous Atmospheres) – Dispersion Model, MARPLOT – Mapping, LandView- Population, Tiger data UsersLocal Emergency Planning Committee, First Responders, Response Center Personnel SupportNOAA, EPA, Census Dept. CostsFree, Potential costs for updated meteorological and detailed roads data

9 CAMEO Interface

10 CAMEO Scenario 1: Train Derailment: Train containing benzene has derailed and several tank cars have caught fire and are releasing benzene gas

11 ALOHA modeling

12 Evaluation of Autodesk GIS PlatformAutodesk MapGuide® 6.5 software ApplicationsNatural Disasters(Earthquake,Floods), Fires, Bombing FunctionalityQuickly access, visualize, and analyze critical data so people can understand and appropriately respond to emergencies Models and Databases AutoCAD drawings, engineering data, demographics, hazardous material locations UsersFire and police departments, local government, search and recovery teams Supportwebsite, User-forums Costs$4, government price for MapGuide: 10 User Starter Pack, Additional costs for other modules: Autodesk Preplan, Autodesk Crisis Command, Autodesk Mobile Command, AutoCAD, 3D Studio

13 Three Main Components of Autodesk Emergency Response Model Administrative - Training and preplanning are done in this phase –Autodesk Pre-Plan Tactical - Refers to the first responder activity that takes place on the scene of an emergency –Autodesk Mobile Command Strategic - Refers to the management of a disaster, which often takes place in an emergency command center away from the actual sit –Autodesk Crisis Command 2

14 Autodesk Detail CAD Drawings Autodesk 3D Viewer Autodesk Mapping Building Footprint

15 Evaluation of ACCELA GIS PlatformAccela GIS, Built on Vantage360 ApplicationsNatural Disasters(Earthquake,Floods), Fires FunctionalityWith the ability to automate workflow, track information, and manage data from a centralized database. Models and Databases Accela Asset Management, Accela Land Management, Accela GIS, Accela Wireless UsersGovernment agencies (E-government solution) SupportInteractive Voice Response CostsSolutions run around $100 month for services

16 Components of Accela Emergency Response Solution Accela Land Management –Capture detailed information on a building or structure –Attach and retrieve CAD drawings, photographs, and other document files Accela GIS –Maximize time in the field during the response –Automate map analyse and append map layers Accela Wireless –Perform Rapid Damage Assessment –Real-time Data updates from the field

17 Accela GIS Viewer

18 Evaluation of E Team GIS PlatformESRI – Powered by ArcIMS ApplicationsAny type of emergency FunctionalityEvery phase of a crisis: preparedness… response… recovery Models and Databases CATS-generated plume models can be integrated, analyzed, and distributed; DB integration offered as professional service UsersEmergency management, law enforcement, fire, public works, public health, the environment SupportPhone, fax, , online; professional or specialized support services also offered Costs$1900/license, deals available

19 E Team Screen Shots

20 Evaluation of MapTooL GIS PlatformESRI – Map Objects version 2.3 ApplicationsDesigned with firefighting in mind, but can be useful for other emergencies based on information collected by user FunctionalityNavigation, information retrieval, data collection, administrative decision support Models and Databases No native modeling capability, but output from other systems can be displayed and queried within MapTooL UsersFirst responders and administrative personnel, primarily fire agencies SupportAnnual maintenance contract includes 20 hrs. technical support plus DB, liaison, and versioning services CostsSet-up fee ~$7000, $900/license, annual maintenance fee based on number of licenses purchased

21 MapTooL Screen Shots

22 Conclusion Good general solution: E Team and CATS Good low-cost alternative: CAMEO Autodesk –Pro: CAD interface –Con: Complexity (modules) MapTooL –Pro: Ease of use –Con: Cost Accela generally weak
