Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 18, 2009 –- Depiction, Inc. announced today an array of resources to help community health officials make use of the company’s new mapping software in real-time operational reporting for H1N1 response. These resources, including a video, a white paper and a free webinar, each demonstrate how Depiction can be used as an easily implemented, innovative and inexpensive way to share information visually.

 
  • Video of county vaccination scenario
This five-minute scenario shows how a county with multiple vaccination locations can easily monitor and manage public demand and clinic supply in real-time, using a dynamically updated map display.

 
  • White paper detailing effective H1N1 real-time reporting

The white paper, “H1N1 Pandemic Response Operations: Real-time Situational Reporting Made Easy,” goes into more detail than the video about the process of using Depiction to maintain situational awareness, particularly in terms of H1N1 response. Both the white paper and the video are available at http://www.depiction.com/h1n1

 
  • Live webinar demonstrating H1N1 clinic reporting
The webinar “H1N1 Pandemic Response: Operational Reporting,” will be held November 24 at 1 PM EST/10 AM PST. To register for this free 1-hour webinar, visit https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/915963793.

The webinar will be hosted by Capt. Kim Buike, (USN ret.), who, in addition to being Depiction, Inc.’s Customer Engagement Director, is an active Red Cross volunteer. The idea for preparing these resources grew out of his experience assisting with local H1N1 vaccine clinics last month.

“The traditional information sharing systems used in most situations like this have many weaknesses,” Buike observed. “Situation reports are typically relayed on a one-to-one basis over phone, email or radio, then written on a whiteboard or told verbally to the responsible parties. This works to a certain extent, but when multiple people provide and receive multiple reports, the risk of misstating or mishearing something is high and the risk of different people having conflicting information is even higher.

“It became clear to me very quickly that Depiction is the perfect tool for relaying real-time situation reports, not only in a traditional one-to-one method, but with a one-to-many approach that keeps all agencies involved abreast of the current situation.”

Capt. Kim Buike served 27 years in the Navy, commanding a destroyer in the Persian Gulf and the Navy's most modern shore facility, Naval Station Everett before retiring in 2003. Captain Buike is also a Red Cross volunteer and serves in the local County Emergency Operations Center as a Red Cross Liaison during community disasters. As Depiction Inc.’s Customer Engagement Director, he has been instrumental in the development of Depiction.

Depiction allows everyday users to combine data and images both from online sources and their own computer, creating dynamic, interactive maps and simulations. These "depictions" can be saved, stored emailed and used--even offline. Depiction has been used by government agencies, volunteers, and non-profit organizations to coordinate response during Hurricanes Gustav and Ike in the Gulf Coast, in wildfires in California, and many other disasters across the country. Visit the Depiction website today to purchase Depiction and the APRS add-on, to check out example scenarios for applications such as sharing situational awareness, or to develop your own scenarios.
