Aurora, Colo. - The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) announced the release of a new Geospatial Dimensions of Critical Infrastructure Protection and Emergency Response (CIP-ER) white paper series, which will include at least seven white papers published into the fall of 2008 and spring of 2009.

The series focuses on the interdependencies of the vertical markets where GITA members and constituents use geospatial technology, including electric utilities, gas utilities, public agencies, telecommunications companies, water utilities, transportation agencies, and pipeline companies.

The first of the series, Infrastructure Interdependencies, is now available at  www.gita.org/ciper, along with an article by GITA’s Executive Director, Bob Samborski, which introduces the series. The article also describes how the white paper series is the next installment in GITA’s efforts to be a top resource for geospatial solutions to infrastructure.

“This series is all about looking at the big picture while understanding the details within it,” said GITA Executive Director Bob Samborski. “By discovering the various interconnections of the infrastructure, better understanding how different facets of that infrastructure are affected during an emergency, and seeing how geospatial technology enables successful system integration, geospatial practitioners are in a better position to help solve problems of our crumbling infrastructure.”

For full details on the white paper series, visit GITA’s CIP-ER Space at  www.gita.org/ciper.  The project will also be a major topic at GITA’s 2009 Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference and 2009 Geospatial Dimensions of Emergency Response Symposium.
