For communities, businesses and families, Depiction with the Preparedness Add-on is a smart addition to emergency preparation—explore emergency scenarios quickly and easily, and understand the resources available to you before disaster strikes.

GET A KIT   MAKE A PLAN   BE INFORMED
Build and keep track of your emergency kit with the new Preparedness Add-On. Your kit should not only include food, water and medicine, but also local maps—on paper and saved as depictions. In an emergency, Depiction can load those maps without being connected to the Internet. Use Depiction to keep track of local emergency resources and potential dangers, and to plan evacuation routes, meeting places and more. The new Preparedness Add-On contains more than a dozen elements that can be used in your emergency plan. Use the flood tool, local GIS datasets and the new Quickstart data sources included in the Preparedness Add-On--including earthquake, hurricane, tornado and wildfire data--to learn what kind of disasters are most likely to affect your community.
