This course teaches new GIS users how to apply the ArcGIS for Desktop software to support disaster mitigation, response, recovery, and risk management. ArcGIS for Desktop allows users to analyze their data and create geographic knowledge to examine relationships, test predictions, and ultimately make better decisions. Course participants complete numerous hands-on activities that help them learn to develop informative maps as well as to use tools that answer questions based on where things are located and what is known about them. It also develops a variety of skills that can be used to create, edit, manage, and analyze both spatial and tabular data. While this course does not provide hands-on instruction specifically on Hazus-MH, all activities use Hazus-MH inventory and analysis outputs.

Course Objectives:
• Learn how GIS can be used by emergency management professionals.
• Develop a working knowledge of the most commonly used ArcGIS tools—particularly those related to creating maps and asking questions.
• Identify examples of advanced GIS tools and techniques that are available for exploration outside of this course.

Selection Criteria: Federal, state, local, and tribal emergency managers as well as specialists responsible for risk assessment, response, recovery, and other emergency management-related activities that have an interest in using ArcGIS to support their needs.
