Essential GIS Capabilities for Operations Centers


Session Overview

The goal of any Operations Center is to provide situational awareness and share data across its user community for better coordination and decision making. GIS was built specifically to collect, analyze, and disseminate information in a more intuitive and understandable way, through a map.

Esri’s ArcGIS platform empowers organizations to achieve shared situational awareness by integrating multiple sources of information and making it accessible to emergency responders through dynamic maps, dashboards and web applications.

This webinar will use live demonstrations to introduce the key initial operating capabilities to support any operations center and keep your community safe.

  • Capture geo-referenced data, track work progress and report your activities from mobile devices with Collector for ArcGIS
  • Combine map data with text, images and multimedia content using Story Maps to easily disseminate your briefings or reports in a dynamic manner
  • Publish and manage your maps and apps with ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Portal

Intended Audience
