USGS National Geospatial Program

Project Goal

The mission of the Bureau’s Geospatial Information Response Team (GIRT) is to coordinate, communicate, disseminate, and facilitate the use of geospatial information to assure Bureau situational awareness and resource management during disaster events. The GIRT accomplishes this through the Program’s Event Support Map (ESM). The ESM is built on the AGOL platform and includes story maps, WebMaps, WebApps, and Dashboards. The GIRT utilizes the ESM for the discovery, coordination, access, visualization, acquisition, and delivery of spatial data and products for the bureau; anticipating geospatial needs; and providing coordinated products and services that support a consolidated USGS data and application response to natural disasters.
