USNG Disaster Info Slide

February 10, 2014 No Comments by central

After a disaster, when the “normal” means to describe locations, such as street signs, are gone, the U.S. National Grid provide a standardized grid reference system that is seamless across jurisdictional boundaries and allows for pinpointing exact locations.

Since USNG is standardized, it can be understood and used as a common geographic framework for response. SharedGeo is creating a USNG Information Website. Learn more about SharedGeo’s USNG Project.
