Maps and data visualisation are often not the priority when crisis hit: first we have to act. However, it can prove to be precious allies when it comes to facilitate the intervention and can even improve its efficiency while helping decision makers. What is the role of GIS during emergency interventions in epidemiology, what basic data is required, whom should have access to the maps produced, is there any restriction to the displaying of such potentially sensitive maps, and even to their simple production ? These questions will be raised, and our speakers will try answer it.
