This lesson gave you an opportunity to work with your classmates and explore for yourself how GIS was applied in a recent crisis situation. I think it is particularly important for us to look at real-world case studies like these to suggest new ways in which we might plan more effective GIS systems for emergency management. Every year brings with it new types of GIS technology, as well as serious disasters in places and situations we may not have anticipated.
