Disaster response involves rapid integration of diverse data sources in order to derive spatial information critical to an effective disaster response. This presentation will look at a range of use cases where FME has been used in both disaster response scenarios and practical applications. Safe participated in a recent OGC Testbed that involved a flood disaster response scenario for the San Francisco Bay area. A number of national mapping and environment agencies use FME for managing their flood data, weather data and disaster response resources. Typical disaster response workflows and formats will also be reviewed, including how FME works with DEMs, imagery, time series data and live web feeds to integrate real time with base map data and provide the results planners need to respond effectively. FME's strong support for open standards related to emergency response will also be discussed.
