The Disaster Resource Guide Continuity e-Guide #355 released yesterday includes “Exercises Crucial for Effective Disaster Planning”. This is right in line with our thinking and our sponsorship of the Formidable Footprint Exercises. It’s great to see that this is an international trend! For more on Depiction and exercises, check out these upcoming and recent webinars:
- Formidable Footprint Exercise Preview, 10/28/2010
- SAR Tabletop Exercise, 8/28/2010
- Enable Tabletop Disaster Exercises with GIS Using Depiction, 9/30/2010
Please let us know if we can help you plan or coordinate a local exercise (or if you plan to use Depiction in one).
Depiction version 1.2.2b is now available. Users can run the Depiction Update program or download and install the update manually.
One of the main fixes in this update is connections to two of our imagery sources, NAIP and MSRMaps (TerraServer). Some users may have seen white tiles in the background of their depictions from these sources. To replace those tiles in the depiction cache, run one of our new batch files, available here. Also available is an OpenStreetMap cache clearing batch file, which will be useful if you have updated that source.
The update also allows APRS Live Add-on users to start the add-on while Depiction is offline.
In other news, we will be repeating the Depiction 101: Revelears & Live Reports webinar on Wednesday, July 21 at 2:30pm Pacific. Click the title to register. The 7/14 session was well attended, but didn’t get recorded. You’ll find my outline in our knowledgebase.
Thanks for the continued support! Happy Depicting!
One of our new users, Russell Deffner, also happens to be a writer with a GIS-related minor. He wrote the following article for The Flume, his local paper in Park County, Colorado. The paper recently published an article he wrote about a new state park being developed in the area. A PDF of the article is attached. Images Russell created with Depiction are excerpted below.
Thanks for sharing, Russell, and a fine use for Depiction!
