  • EMIS is a IT service platform that provides tools for emergency managers and decision makers
    To collect and maintain services for the emergency management community
    To provide a central knowledge store for all things EM IT related
    EMIS Provides:
    Access to technology designed to facilitate emergency management services, such as mapping services and situational awareness software;
    Standard Operating Guidelines and practices as it relates to the effective and coordinated use of E Team;
    Access to common and standardized E Team training and preparedness services;
    Coordination of emergency management information services between participating stakeholders; and
    Support for stakeholders during the implementation and post-implementation phases as they migrate to EMIS.
    Refer to service plan and align it with the service plan each section should have a separate component
  • EMIS is really about :
    providing the ability for emergency management organizations and personnel to communicate, collaborate, and share information in real time
    providing the capability to better organize, manage and respond to the full spectrum of emergencies, critical incidents and events that occur within the province
  • BCeMAP is a Multi- Agency Situational Awareness tool that provides a framework for geospatial intelligence, data fusion and visualization. In conjunction with Emergency Management British Columbia, GeoBC and multiple stakeholders it is used to gain a timely accurate understanding of emergency management operations and the events that impact them.
    The BC Emergency Event Map system (BCeMap) is intended to:
    Provide real-time dissemination of a province-wide emergency event map to trusted partners in British Columbia, including local, regional, provincial and national emergency management organisations, other public safety agencies and critical infrastructure operators.
     
    Provide a Common Operating Picture that integrates incident, geographic, infrastructure, threat and hazard information to provide common situational awareness to multiple agencies while planning for and responding to emergency events of all types.
     
    Provide the ability to access and disseminate geospatial incident information to other trusted federal and provincial partners. This may include dissemination of information to other geospatially enabled systems
  • When fusing threat or hazard information with response data emergency management operations get detailed context about events that impact them. This allows emergency management professional to manage these consequences to potentially improve planning, response and mitigation of these events.
    It provides a Common Operational Picture for Enhanced Situational Awareness that facilitates Strategic Planning while improving Operational Support and Consequence Management
  • Due to the evolution of standards-based interoperability architectures, geographic information technology and the web we have been able to pull and create information in way that can be
    Published, Aggregated and consumed by users to gain a an improved understanding of what is occurring around us. This is Situational Awareness!!
  • BCeMap is based on a multi-tier service architecture. At the client tier, all access to the BCeMap application – including static and dynamic content, map viewing, access to data feeds, etc. – will be from a standard web browser such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.
    Map Server(ArcGIS Server) – provides all the services necessary to support the mapping functions of BCeMap such as panning, zooming, layer control, tile caching to optimize performance, spatial overlay, etc.
    Feed Aggregator – reads data from a variety of external source feeds in different formats, integrates them into a common representation, and exposes them in standard formats for consumption by the BCeMap application.
    The source tier represents the range of types of data feeds and sources to be accessed and consumed by the BCeMap application. There are two types of data:
    Base Data: This data will be provided primarily as a tiled cache and/or WMS/WFS (All standard WMS/WFS features/functions must be supported (ie.GetFeatureInfo))
    External Feeds: These sources are external to GeoBC (e.g. BC Hydro, Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, etc.), and are in variety of formats – some standard, others custom. Standard formats such as WMS and GeoRSS will pose little or no problem for integration with BCeMap. Custom formats and the CAP (Common Alerting Protocol) and the WSDL formats will require effort to integrate into the Feed Aggregator.   Data stored in the Feed Aggregator will be published using Open Protocols, including WMS, WFS or JSON.
  • Enhancement of Emergency Management Information System (EMIS) being implemented by Emergency Management BC
    Timely and real time sharing of event location and description
    Sharing of information between Public Safety Agencies & CI Owners
    Support local, provincial and federal Emergency Operation Centers by providing Situational Awareness
    Share incident information with other jurisdictions e.g. Alberta, New Brunswick
    Rapidly configured and interoperable
    Simple deployment using custom tools that are interoperable between systems using a ArcGIS Server 9.3.1 framework
    Highly accessible with associated security protocols performance without caching
    Readily accessible datasets for analysis, and report usage
    Used for tactical planning
    Daily use for ADM/Deputy Ministerial briefings
