USNG Google Mashup

The site below is a Google mashup that shows the US National Grid locator and grid system. Very neat! Also is a Google Group that has some brief discussion on the use of the USNG for disaster.

Google Discussion Group on the USNG Google Mashup



This is something that the Sacramento EOC (Emergency Operation Center) is looking into. We are evaluating the use of Google Maps and similar Internet ready maps where we can just load up GIS data for our EOC members (that are not GIS). In past trainings and activations, the EOC membership needs data rapidly and in an environment that is easy to navigate, update, and present on large screens (in addition to creating paper maps and GIS analyses).
