Additional Information

About the Instructor

Karen Volarich has over 20 years of experience working in GIS at the federal, state, and local levels. She has expertise in GIS systems architecture, application development, data acquisition and integration with non-GIS systems. She has primarily worked in disaster response and situational awareness.

Why my course is useful

All organizations have made a move to central dissemination of geographic data for rapid decision making. For emergency management, there are many considerations for data and enduser needs. This course gives you the skills to setup a geographic portal quickly and reliably before you are under stressful conditions.

Why I built it

There was software. There was a need. That's it. I never took a course that showed me how to do this project. And therefore, it took a lot of trial, error, and many discussions to produce my first Geoportal. I know that emergency management deals with lives and property so I wanted others to have a shortcut to improve safety and emergency response.

What I hope for you

Take this course and you can show up at the table with an informed technical voice. Rather than trying to figure out the components, you'll be able to make your architecture decisions with certainty. I want you to join the club of GIS architects that truly save lives!
