I don't write very frequently, so as a bit of background I'm a U.S. Army
officer. Currently I head intelligence and geospatial support for a
theater engineer brigade. One of the focal points not only of my unit, but
higher headquarters is disaster relief. I found out about this mailing
list during the Nepal earthquakes, and it's definitely been very insightful.
What's become clear to me is for a variety of reasons, our current
geospatial equipment is not a good fit for these types of tasks. Since I
come from a tech background, I'm interested in coming up with a solution to
The specific scenario I'm contemplating is the equipment necessary to
deploy a team of 8 GIS analysts to read out imagery, create maps and other
products, and host them on a server accessible to recovery teams and other
parties, both U.S. government, partners, and NGOs.
The permissions piece is a separate and complicated process, but I was
wondering if based on specific experiences anyone can share lessons learned
and recommend either software or hardware to accomplish this (preferably
stuff with real world HA/DR usage).
The U.S. Army trains geospatial analysts in ArcGIS, so I think at least on
the client end I'd be looking at Windows, ArcGIS, and ? to read out imagery
to HOT? On the server end it seems like there's more flexibility.
Thanks in advance for your input. Hopefully if I can see this project to
completion it could mean closer interaction with your efforts in the future.
