MARPLOT, a free mapping program for emergency response with an easy-to-use GIS interface, has added data and functionality in its recent 5.0 release.

MARPLOT, free mapping software jointly developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for responding to hazardous chemical spills, is now improved with version 5.0. The release adds new mapping options, better data searching and expanded utility for disaster response.

MARPLOT is part of a suite of programs called Computer-Aided Management of Emergency Operations. The software allows users to add objects to maps as well as view and edit data associated with the objects. A geographic information system (GIS) interface allows users to customize online Web Map Services, and ties into datasets such as population, real-time weather services and other information.

The disaster response tool is aimed at at emergency planners and responders, and now goes well beyond its original chemical spill application. Users are working with the tool for wildfires, floods, resource management, manhunts and search-and-rescue operations.
