Geographic Information Systems at the WTC

I recently wrote in my blog welcome message about a book project on the use of mapping technology in 9/11 rescue & recovery efforts. I’m moving this off the welcome message because I am going to start to write it. There are a lot of great resources on the mapping efforts at Pier 92 in New York City available at the GISMO website:

Directions Magazine has a great map gallery at their site:

Even National Geographics Magazine picked up the story, interviewing some of the members of GISMO:
