Washington slide shows the value of quality mapping

slideChecking out this link passed along by SoCalGIS: http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2023215066_mudslidemondayxml.html, and the maps in the article, highlighted, for me, the value of good GIS data.

Having a “before” picture provided by GIS, along with streets, parcels, building outlines, and other critical information, along with LIDAR data, makes the maps show the massive scale of this slide more than all of the articles I have read about it.

Take a look.
