Public safety and security agencies are participating in a multi-jurisdictional TIGER team to address geospatial requirements for security planning of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. Members include RCMP, DND, EMBC, ILMB, City of Vancouver and ICIS representing its members from cities and utilities across British Columbia.
In meeting the above challenge, the team has identified a need to acquire regional coverage of aerial imagery in spring 2009 along with the generation of high-resolution ortho-photography. This will allow security agencies to have the most up to date base information to support a wide variety of analysis, planning, reconnaissance and response efforts related to security of 2010 Games.
