Workshop Flyer

Target Audience: Regional and municipal planners & GIS staff; Emergency and floodplain managers; DPW staff, natural resource managers & conservation agents; Local Boards (planning, conservation, emergency management); Environmental organizations; State agency staff and local technical experts; Town administrators and selectmen

HurricaneDescription: This workshop will focus on examining existing web-based mapping and visualization tools that can inform local planning and emergency response efforts and ways to enhance their utility.  It will incorporate tools and planning processes that are being effectively used in New Jersey communities affected by Super Storm Sandy to strengthen resiliency planning and identify elements that may be transferable to Cape Cod.  Through a blend of presentations, interactive demonstration, and discussion, the workshop will allow participants to contribute concrete ideas on ways to enhance mapping tools to make them as useful as possible to local decision-makers. Recognizing that mapping tools on their own are insufficient to achieve resiliency goals, the workshop will also provide a forum to highlight opportunities and collaborative action necessary to continue making progress towards a more resilient Cape Cod.
