DTM developed and implemented a data model for converting the paper Emergency Action Plans for Montana dams to a GIS-based digital format. In total, DTM converted over 200 maps for 19 different dams. The data model includes information for both potential and in-progress dam breaks, along with an XML-based phone calling tree to allow rapid access to emergency contacts. The data model is structured to integrate directly with Montana’s Critical Infrastructure Database.
