Back Up and Share Incident Data

Frequent back up of incident data is a critical step in the GISS Workflow. A back up should be made of the incident data after each edit session and the Master Projects should be backed up daily as a set (and optionally individually after major updates).

Data should be backed up not only within the GeoOps Directory Structure, but the entire directory should be backed up to a secondary physical drive at least daily. Hard drives fail under normal conditions and ICPs are often anything but.

Back up of incident data is necessary to:

  • Minimize disruption and delay in the event of data corruption, loss, or unavailability.
  • Ensure access to incident data and products.
  • Ensure effective and efficient team transition.
  • Preserve the incident record.
