Standard Unified Modeling, Mapping and Integration Toolkit (SUMMIT)

Using iPad™ mobile devices, emergency preparedness officials and first responders participating in FEMA’s recent National Level Exercise 2011 were able to make use of a new, science-based software tool that allows them to view and modify accurate models of building damage and other post-event disaster effects.

SUMMIT significantly improves the cycle of activities that emergency response teams undertake, including pre-event planning and equipping, training and exercises and evaluation and improvement. By creating a collaboration environment that allows dynamic linking of “best-in-class” modeling and simulation tools and underlying data, SUMMIT enhances the effectiveness of preparedness activities while reducing the time and cost needed to train for, analyze and respond to real or potential incidents.
