The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) subcommittee of the Regional Homeland Security Coordinating Committee was formed in July 2006.

The KC Metro GIS Consortium works with the Metropolitan Emergency Managers Committee (MEMC) to develop GIS capabilities at the local and regional level that support preparedness, response and recovery activities.

Current work priorities include:

  • Working with the KC Metro GIS Consortium to enhance the region’s capability to use GIS resources in support of emergency preparedness and response.
  • Maintaining regional GIS datasets housed on the secure regional GIS server.
  • Maintaining a consistent database to house Tier II data for all metro area counties.
