Marine incident geospatial support guideline 2018

This guideline defines a nationally consistent approach for local, state and Commonwealth marine incident response geographic information systems (GIS) coordinators to develop and implement their own processes and products.
27 July 2018

This document should improve processes for the organisation, collection, management and delivery of geospatial data, intelligence and products into the Incident Control Centre (ICC). Each jurisdiction can have its own guidance and plan for its GIS personnel to use when supporting a maritime emergency incident. This will allow other emergency management professionals to better understand the spatial information management issues and business needs of a maritime response. 

This document will evolve as more and more local agencies adopt GIS operating procedures for emergency management and provide critique and commentary to the MIGS Working Group.
