The book explains how enabling a COP with the ability to analyze location-based data gives emergency management directors the overview necessary to coordinate efforts across agencies and jurisdictions to mitigate loss during times of crises and disasters.

Highlights of the book include the following:

  • Directions on how to build an integrated emergency management COP
  • Enhanced comprehensive situational awareness methods and tools
  • Best practices for emergency management workflows

Enabling Comprehensive Situational Awareness was written by Susan L. Radke, founder and president of Berkeley Geo-Research Group; Russ Johnson, public safety and homeland security director for Esri; and Jeff Baranyi, Esri's technical lead for the public safety market.

"The emergency management workflow defines how response professionals plan for and react to significant events," write the authors. "The phases in this workflow include mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. GIS can be used in each of these phases through data management, planning and analysis, and field operations."

Enabling Comprehensive Situational Awareness (ISBN: 978-1-58948-306-4, 204 pages, US$18.95) is available at online retailers worldwide, at esri.com/esripress, or by calling 1-800-447-9778.  Outside the United States, visit esri.com/esripressorders for complete ordering options or visit esri.com/distributors to contact your local Esri distributor.
