Geospatial Emergency Management Support System Version 2.0


The Geospatial Emergency Management Support System (GEMSS) was developed by the Texas Natural Resources Information System (TNRIS), a part of the Texas Water Development Board, using the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) managed by the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM). It is the first coordinated effort to create an infrastructure in which data collected during and after major disasters can be integrated with real-time and existing geospatial data.

GEMSS allows the data to be presented in a useful and compelling manner, without requiring specialized knowledge of GIS data or applications. GEMSS is designed to become the public domain tool to support emergency activities.
