Paper Abstract

Geographic information systems (GISs) represent a technology that is being used by many disciplines throughout the world. GIS is currently being used in many security related applications for route planning, location of key facilities, and as an index into higher detail data sets such as building plans. The coming of the Olympic Games to the Atlanta area in 1996 gives us a chance to show the practical uses of GIS in security applications. This paper investigates the potential for GIS and visualization techniques to be used in a hostage rescue situation and in planning for the placement of surveillance cameras within the Georgia Tech campus, the 10996 Olympic Village.
