U.S. National Grid Training

Developed by the Federal Geographic Data Committee and endorsed by FEMA and the National Search and Rescue Committee, the U.S. National Grid (USNG) is an easy to use system for identifying and determining locations with a USNG gridded map and/or a USNG enabled GPS system. Based on techniques used by the military for more than 50 years, it offers an inexpensive way for all components of the emergency response community to have a common geospatial frame of reference while serving as an “always ready” backup for high-tech systems.

Speaker: Talbot Brooks

Through a national effort sponsored by the U.S. Geological Survey, USNG spokesperson Talbot Brooks, Director of the Center for Interdisciplinary Geospatial Information Technologies at Delta State University, Cleveland, Mississippi, will be in 

Arlington, Texas  at  the Tarrant County SE Campus (2100 Southeast Pkwy, Arlington, TX 76018 ) to relate his experiences from providing geospatial support to the Katrina response. He will tell a story that will leave little doubt why all elements of the emergency response and GIS communities should know about the USNG.
