URISA's 'Deploying Mobile GIS' Certified Workshop to be Offered Online
URISA announced the presentation of one of its most popular Certified Workshops, Deploying Mobile GIS, via instructor-led web based training. The workshop is regularly presented at URISA conferences, chapter events and at regional conferences. Normally a full-day classroom session, the workshop has been re-packaged into three sections and will be presented online in March to meet the constant demand for the subject matter without the travel expense and time away from work. The workshop content is thoroughly peer-reviewed and updated each year and is eligible for GISP Education credit (8 hours of EDU-2).
This 8-hour workshop will be presented over three days:
- Wednesday, March 19, 2014 - 1– 4 p.m. EST
- Thursday, March 20, 2014 - 1– 4 p.m. EST
- Friday, March 21, 2014 - 1– 3 p.m. EST
Attendees will receive all of the benefits of traditional classroom learning in an interactive online classroom while not having the expense of traveling to onsite training locations. Interactive communication between the instructor and other attendees is accomplished through communication tools within the training platform. Participants will receive an electronic workbook to accompany the instruction and a certificate of completion.
Course Description: One way to meet demands for providing superior service levels and operational efficiencies under tightening budget constraints is to leverage new technology that places GIS data in the hands of field crews. This allows for improved management and better maintenance of work processes to properly appraise infrastructure assets and to meet service request response times. This workshop is designed to provide local government managers with practical guidelines for building an effective mobile GIS program across multiple departments.
Specific topics include:
- Practical guidelines for building a mobile GIS
- Business drivers for moving GIS technology and data into the field
- Alternative strategies for implementing GIS-based field solutions
- Overcoming obstacles to automating field processes
- Steps in the mobility implementation process
Intended Audience: Supervisors and managers responsible for public works operations. GIS and IT department managers interested in mobilizing user applications and Mobile GIS project managers.
