Find Out How to Create a Common Operational Picture with ESRI's ArcGIS Software

ESRI Live Training Seminar Will Demonstrate How GIS Technology Provides Comprehensive Situational Awareness

REDLANDS, Calif., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- During a natural disaster such as a wildfire, a threat to homeland security, or an emergency such as a chemical spill, agencies rely on a common operational picture (COP) to monitor, respond to, and manage the situation. A COP creates broad situational awareness by combining important geographic information system (GIS) basemap data, such as imagery, critical infrastructure, and hazards, with changing, up-to-the-minute information from cameras, sensors, and other communication devices.

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.

A broadband Internet connection and an ESRI Global Account are needed to watch the seminar. Creating a global account is easy and free: visit www.esri.com/lts, click Login, and register your name and address. A few weeks after the live presentation, the seminar will be archived and available for viewing on the ESRI Training Web site.
