Earth Day Network

Hola! We had another Emergency GIS Team meeting today which went well. We talked about hardware needs and our site address field verification project. If anyone has done a field verification of addresses for an entire City I would love to hear about (good and spcifically bad). An emergency GIS team is not a new idea. Just do a Google search on emergency GIS and see what you come up with. New York City has a whole team devoted to this with a bus (or as they call it the Mobile Data Center). It is pretty cool. Check it out here.

First of all, I suck!! It was Earth Day and I didn't even recognize it on the blog. Although I did celebrate (fellas you know what I mean). "Founded by the organizers of the first Earth Day in 1970, Earth Day Network (EDN) promotes environmental citizenship and year round progressive action worldwide. Earth Day Network is a driving force steering environmental awareness around the world. Through Earth Day Network, activists connect, interact, and impact their communities, and create positive change in local, national, and global policies. EDN's international network reaches over 12,000 organizations in 174 countries, while the domestic program keeps over 3,000 groups and over 100,000 educators coordinating millions of community development and environmental protection activities throughout the year. As a result, Earth Day is the only event celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities. More than a half billion people participate in our campaigns every year." For those that didn't know Earth Day was April 22nd. Check it out at 32 Days!
