Free GITA Webinar - Geospatial Intelligence: How it's Transforming Disaster Response

Wed, Jun 26, 2019 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CDT

VIEW WEBINAR | REGISTRATION REQUIRED

Presenter: Richard Butgereit, GISP
Director of Catastrophe Response at Geospatial Intelligence Center (GIC)

 When a natural disaster strikes, the lives of thousands of citizens are affected. Gaining insight into affected areas to increase situational and operational awareness is crucial in the response and recovery period.

The Geospatial Intelligence Center (GIC) was created to help optimize how emergency management and insurers respond to natural disasters by providing GIS technology solutions. Through high-resolution aerial imagery, geospatial data, and software applications, the GIC empowers both the public and private sector with new digital capabilities to increase the effectiveness of response efforts. The GIC is a not-for-profit organization within the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) that is powered by Vexcel Imaging, the premier aerial imaging company worldwide, and Esri, the global leader in location intelligence. In 2017 when NICB, Vexcel Imaging, and Esri realized that they could join forces to provide critical and actionable insights into catastrophic situations, disaster response was transformed.

The GIC approach is rapid and effective. When a natural disaster occurs, the GIC immediately mobilizes to impacted areas with an aircraft fleet equipped with state-of-the-art digital aerial sensor systems. Within 24-hours of aircrafts landing, ultra-high resolution oblique and nadir imagery is available to emergency management personnel and insurers along with tools to provide immediate insight into the destruction. Using a desktop GIS app, GIC members can assess a catastrophic event without ever leaving their desk. This equips emergency managers with the tools to efficiently assess the damage, resulting in families and communities getting back on the road to recovery.

The program has the ability to save lives with its innovative approach to disaster response. We’ve successfully deployed to 13 natural disasters here in the United States and will to continue to provide location-based insights to ensure the fastest and most complete catastrophe response
