RM-Urisa is proud to be offering two Pre-Conference workshops at the GIS in the Rockies 2017 conference:

Asset Management: Planning, Strategy, and Implementation

Public and private agencies face continuous challenges to accomplish more with less as increases in demand, regulatory requirements, infrastructure deterioration, and political and economic forces have significantly outpaced increases in capital and operating budgets.
Many of these agencies are turning to Asset Management to cope with these challenges and improve business performance and effectiveness. This workshop will focus on several aspects of developing an asset management system that could help improve performance, reduce long-term costs, and maximize return on investment in infrastructure assets.

This workshop is aimed at the GIS professional who is currently supporting or may support their emergency communications division in the future. In a fully operational Next Generation 9-1-1 system, GIS is the core component in determining how a 9-1-1 call is routed to the correct public safety answering point (PSAP). Further, this same data will need to be used in all your 9-1-1 systems (CAD, CAD mapping, etc.). This will have profound impacts on local maintenance workflows, local data access, and data fidelity. We recognize there is a need for education aimed at the GIS professional who may not be as well versed with the 911 terminology or needs. This workshop is intended to provide an overview of Next Generation 9-1-1, GIS’s role in such a system, the implications on local workflows, and illustrate common pain points and sources of errors in local GIS datasets. This course will be taught by Jeff Ledbetter and has no prerequisites. Additionally, users will not need to bring their laptop and this workshop provides GISP CEUs!

Intended Audience:

The GIS professional who is currently supporting or may support their emergency communications division in the future

•PSAP operations staff who are interested in learning more about the data input requirements and work that will need to go into elevating the data for NG9-1-1 systems

•GIS Managers

•Emergency Management and Public Safety professionals

Tech Requirements: None

Time: 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m.
