This half day workshop will focus on Esri solutions to prepare for and respond to disasters. We will discuss how to use ArcGIS online in preparation for supporting a large and coordinated response to a natural disaster. ArcGIS online provides a platform that is scalable and agile for rapid response, however some early forethought and preparations are required to be prepared for these types of events. We will use this time to show various approaches and lessons learned from the devastating fires in California in 2017 and 2018.

Intended Audience: Beginning to Advance GIS users and managers. Basic familiarity with ArcGIS Online is recommended, but not essential.

Learning Objectives: Learn ArcGIS Online techniques to prepare for and respond to disasters, with tips for inter-agency coordination.

Workshop Format: Lecture format.
