Geoinformatics & Disaster Science Lab
The GADS Lab provides hazard mitigation planning services to institutes of higher education across the United States, and local hazard mitigation planning services for counties and other jurisdictions in Tennessee. Plan and product development are data-driven and GIS-based, resulting in comprehensive risk and vulnerability assessments that align with policy goals. With an intensive focus on GIS, products are also geared towards visually communicating hazards and risks to large and diverse audiences through cartographic skill and intuitive webmap/app design. We are both an ESRI and OpenSource GIS Lab.
