The status of Greensburg’s GIS from the trenches.

Fellow KAM member Dan Rose (City of Topeka GIS) Has put together an in-depth article about salvaging Greensburg & Kiowa County’s GIS, and the role of GIS in their disaster recovery.  There’s also some great info @ the end of the article about the current status of the town.  The KAM main page also has a link to more photos as well.
Not to be ambulance-chasing here, but it is a very telling story for governments who think they’re too small for ‘real’ GIS (or off-site backups for that matter).

Kudos to Dan, btw for his great work on the article.
