In 2020 the total of wildfire burned acreage is 6.6 million acres in the Western States, which is the most in a single year since records have been kept. It's critical for organizations to quantify and plan for catastrophic events like fires. This course shows you how to setup an ArcGIS installation on AWS to house historical fire data to be used by regional stakeholders for fire planning.

Why my course is useful
Almost every organization relies on cloud architecture for all their data and applications. This course gives the IT person a grounding in the world of GIS data, applications, and analysis. And it gives the GIS person a grounding in the IT architecture offered through AWS.
Why I built it
College was great, but I learned most of my technical skills outside of the college classroom. My experience was gained through trial and error and I sought out bootcamps and shortcourses to learn tech quickly. I’m excited about the future of GIS, cloud computing, and data science, and I’d like to inspire young talent around the globe to join this amazing career field.
What I hope for you
You are about to be cross-trained with talents in IT/GIS/Cloud. I’m a great example where this talent quickly pushed me up the professional ladder. I’m confident that this portfolio item will get you a job!
