This tool allows facility owners, operators, and veterinarians the opportunity to visualize their biosecurity plans; providing the valuable opportunity to “walk-through” their facility for more comprehensive and detailed planning.
What You Get
Upon completion, users will have a detailed map that can be used at the facility level and demonstrate biosecurity for SAHOs. Your finished product could show:
- Staff and visitor pathways
- Controlled access points
- Isolation areas
- Food prep areas
- Facility boundaries
- Surrounding wildlife
- Surrounding agricultural industries
- and more!
Everything you need to get started in developing your own biosecurity map can be found in the materials folder linked below.
This tool is demonstrated using Google Earth Pro, but can be adapted for use with other GIS software including ArcGIS, Qgis, or other mapping tools. Google Earth Pro can be downloaded for free at https://www.google.com/earth/versions/#download-pro.
