Collaborating Through Maps: Hands-On GIS Workshop LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

This full-day workshop aims to foster collaboration between consortium members on the use of Geographic Information technologies and provide hands-on training in the latest technologies with participants Story-maps used to share situational awareness during emergencies are simple to use and do not require specific GIS skills to operate. Interagency collaboration facilitated by story maps causes the sum of work to be greater than the individual components.

The workshop will begin with presentations from Esri, NetHope and consortium members on current uses of Geographic Information technologies, and evolving GI strategies, then move to hands-on training in GIS software and publishing web-maps. CIOs and current GIS users within consortium member organizations, will gain hands-on experience in GIS as well as connections to other organizations working on similar GI challenges.
