GIS Response in an Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
Instructor: Mark Schmidt, Butler County GIS
9 am to 12 pm, Tuesday, October 24, 2023

Natural disasters can strike at any moment, and their impact can be devastating. Preparedness is crucial to ensure that individuals and communities can respond effectively to natural disasters. This workshop will focus on how to implement basic GIS datasets and workflows to ensure that you, as a GIS professional, are prepared to respond to a disaster. Specifically, participants will:

  1. (Web AppBuilder) Create a Situational Awareness viewer – Damage Path & Summary Report of items in path such as census population and address points (Additional items could be added later such as critical infrastructure, estimated valuation and hazardous materials)
  2. (Web AppBuilder) Create a Live Incident viewer – Zone map layouts and print widget
  3. (QuickCapture) Initial Search mobile app
  4. (ArcGIS Pro) Create required datasets – Zones, Damage Path, Initial Search points
  5. (ArcGIS Pro) Publish the datasets into AGOL

Attendees will need to bring a laptop*. They will also need an ArcGIS Online account. If they don’t have an account, we can set them up on our AGOL for class, however, they must notify us ahead of time if this is needed. ArcGIS Pro is required to publish to AGOL along with creating map layouts, but any version of Pro should work. A mobile device (smart phone or tablet) is recommended but not required. We will be configuring a QuickCapture project, so having a mobile device would be nice to see it working.

* Don't miss out on the class if you cannot provide your own laptop! Contact us at kamappers@gmail.com for options for borrowing a device.

Don't miss out on the 2023 KAM Conference! Separate registration required.

Note: a late fee of $25 will be charged for participants who register on the day of the workshop.
