Mapping The Nation: Building A More Resilient Future

Mapping the Nation: Building a More Resilient Future is a collection of GIS maps illustrating the many ways that federal government agencies rely on GIS analysis to build stronger, more resilient communities and help make the world a better place. Pulled from a broad range of departments, maps included in the book demonstrate how the technology can be used to evaluate, plan and respond to social, economic, and environmental concerns at local, regional, national, and global levels. These examples on topics such as green government, economic recovery and sustainability, climate protection, and more show how government agencies use GIS to facilitate initiatives, improve transparency, and deliver strong business models.

I was looking to see if more had been done along the lines if homeland security, in particular storms and weather related examples. At first review, this appears to be an area that needs further development.
