AGENDA

Presentations

2. Philadelphia Plans for Debris Management

Matt Werner, Infrastructure Program Manager, City of Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management, and Catherine Bohn, Senior Project Manager, Dewberry, will focus on the importance of debris management site selection to include creating debris forecasts, screening potential sites, and summarizing the resulting recommendations.

3. Wikimapping and Designing a Single Application for Everyone

Steve Spindler, Cartographer, will address how WikiMapping is being used and some of the challenges and opportunities associated with developing a single system. Coding and cartography projects both have uncertain time frames and levels of effort.  It’s hard to say up front how much something should cost and how much effort will be involved.  WikiMapping provides an opportunity to serve people without getting bogged down by proposals, contracts, and the uncertainty of being subcontractors.
