The Michigan Mapping Project Geographical Information System (GIS) program is an environmental emergency response tool that brings public (federal, state and local) and private sector emergency responders together, working in one GIS format for spill response and pre-planning. During an emergency response, federal and state On-Scene Coordinators (OSCs) use the project to gain situational awareness of downstream/downwind vulnerabilities, as well as upstream/upwind potential responsible parties. For contingency planning, the project can introduce facilities to the communities which may be impacted during a hazardous materials and/or petroleum release. The program can also be used during exercises of facility response plans by providing participants access to response layers such as: endangered/protected species and habitats; sanitary and storm sewer systems; facility discharge and permit discharge points; water supplies; other pollution sources (facilities, oil wells, pipelines, rail lines, etc.); and vulnerable populations (schools, nursing homes, daycare facilities, hospitals, etc.).
