Mrs. Iris Medina, a Joint Task Force-Bravo Civil/Military Operations liaison, reviews live feed from a Web-based application called the Rapid Open Geospatial User-driven Enterprise or ROUTE tool, which allows information sharing of mapped data by geographically dispersed participants for the purpose of improved situational awareness and decision making. Members from U.S. Southern Command and Joint Task Force-Bravo partnered with the Permanent Contingency Commission of Honduras, COPECO (the Federal Emergency Management Agency equivalent), joint efforts here and in Tegucigalpa Sept 12-15, to demonstrate and assess a mapping tool, which will improve the governmental and non-governmental organizations’ capability during complex humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations.
