ESRI Live Training Seminar Will Demonstrate How GIS Technology Provides Comprehensive Situational Awareness
ESRI will host a seminar on September 24, 2009, to demonstrate how a COP can be created using ESRI's ArcGIS software. Creating a Common Operational Picture with ArcGIS will air at www.esri.com/lts at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. (Pacific daylight time).
Many organizations, such as emergency management and law enforcement agencies, use ArcGIS technology to create, manage, and serve maps and GIS services through a COP. The seminar's presenters will explain the requirements and capabilities needed to enable a COP using ArcGIS, along with the considerations that need to be taken into account for the users.
Attendees will learn
-- What a COP means and involves -- How and why a COP created using GIS provides complete situational awareness -- What's needed to put a COP in place, including requirements for data management, planning, analysis, situational awareness, and field operations support
This live training seminar was created for professionals and GIS analysts who work in public safety; law enforcement; homeland security; and emergency, wildfire, and disaster management. Employees in industries or government agencies that manage a large number of assets will also find the seminar very useful.
