It has been a very long time since I have posted anything here however that will slowly be changing. After starting a new job in early 2011 I wanted to be careful to avoid potential conflicts of interest and the challenge of my personal opinion conflicting with official departmental positions. I feel now however that it is finally time to start blogging again. Some posts in the very near future will include public warning and GIS related issues. A major project that I am currently undertaking is one of using GIS for integrated facility pre-emergency planning (to include interior georeferencing) as well as using geoaware based applications for real-time decision support.
