Geographic information systems (GIS) technology provides the ability to spatially coordinate resources from separate systems.  GIS provides the capacity for the identification of at-risk people with disabilities and actively address the interaction of people and their environment.  Mapping resources, and not just people, in the environment can change the perception and portrayal of people with disabilities in disaster incidents from people with “special needs” to people and organizations that are community contributors
