Behind the Fire Mapping Scenes

| |

CIO|Insight has a behind the scenes look at how San Diego’s Center for Information Technology and Infrastructure (CITI), which is run out of the San Diego State University (SDSU) Visualization Center (aka Viz Center), pulled together resources from NASA, the local radio station KPBS and Google to gather and distribute spatial information during the wildfire disaster.  The article details how Viz Center convinced NASA to reduce its turnaround time on imagery from 24 hours to just 3 hours, invited KPBS personnel to produce their Google Map application directly from their lab, and even convinced Google to make upgrades to accomodate the increased load on their servers.
