Emergency Management Maps are used by emergency management and public safety staff to produce a standard set of maps used in briefing and response activities. Several of the incident-based map documents were developed using specifications from the GIS Standard Operating Procedures on Incidents (GSTOP) distributed by NWCG.
There are four map products included in this solution, Incident Action Plan, Incident Action Plan Map Book, Incident Briefing Map, and Hazard Map. The Incident Action Plan is an 8.5 by 11 inch map product that can be used to support operations and personnel and complements the Incident Action Plan Index Map. The Incident Action Plan Map Book is developed with Data Driven Pages and the 1 kilometer and 10 kilometer U.S. National Grid (USNG). The Incident Briefing Map is an ANSI E-sized map with details about the specific incident and the surrounding area. The Hazard Map displays the key natural and technological hazards. It's an example of a planning and analysis map and can be enhanced to better analyze the data to support additional planning and mitigation efforts.
