got a good response to their call for GIS volunteers
. All volunteer positions are now filled. Volunteers will be going to Jackson, Mississippi.
"Seven of the volunteers are map production experts. There is a lab in Jackson where they can start
their work with hardware and software ready to use. They have some data and more is coming. The
second group of volunteers will be in the field with GPS equipment. The group in Jackson will be
mapping the field data as soon as they can and hand it over to the emergency personnel."
