The use of GIS within Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs) combines visual intelligence and map data from a variety of sources within a real-time situation map. One type of information that is critical to any emergency response is weather. Temperature, winds, humidity, weather radar, and lightning strikes can all impact the situation and response tactics must adapt accordingly. Real-time sources of weather data are now available in GIS-friendly formats for use in the EOC. Real-time weather data can be used to feed trajectory models such as HAZUS MH and ALOHA, among others. This 'weather-aware' GIS also makes location-based notifications possible during a crisis.
