This module on Incident- & Crisis Management (ICM) is based on extensive experience in using the methods and technology provided by GIS to manage ‘real world’ Incident- and Crisis management situations. This has led to the understanding that applying the frameworks for GeoDesign and the Safety Chain clearly provide a solid base for application in specific situations concerning Incident- and crisis management. The way in which the frameworks can be applied not only helps in quicker insights into the requirements for recovering from severe incidents and crises, but also provides an excellent environmentfor planning and preparation for potential crises. This module teaches the students to understand the frameworks that are used in GeoDesign and the Safety Chain and how these can be used in crisis management and preparation. This paper summarizes the learning objectives, lesson content, learning activities and evaluation scheme for this module.
