Sponsored by: Google

Join this webinar for a broad overview of Google’s geospatial solutions and how they help organizations operate more efficiently with geospatial data. The webinar will demonstrate how to share and visualize geospatial data more effectively throughout government agencies at all levels.

We’ll also drill into a case study and demo with the American Red Cross San Diego/Imperial Counties Chapter. The agency needed a solution that could provide 475 first responders with situational awareness for emergency response. With Google Maps, San Diego Red Cross was able to improve all three phases of its disaster response system: preparation, response and recovery. You can read more about speaker Dr. Richard Hinricks and the case study here

You’ll be able to learn:

  • How Google Earth Gallery supports distribution of authoritative maps to the public
  • How Google Maps Coordinate supports the management of personnel during a variety of government operations
  • How Google Earth Enterprise can be used to support applications with classified or sensitive data that needs to be held on premise
  • How portable devices with Google Maps are deployed to the field for disaster response and crisis management
  • How to serve non-sensitive maps and data to the public using Google Maps Engine

Speakers

  • Dr. Richard Hinrichs, Managing Director of Disaster Services, San Diego/Imperial Counties chapter of the Red Cross
  • Laura Horner, Manager, Disaster Operations Technology, San Diego/Imperial Counties chapter of the Red Cross

What will we do with all of the Apple sensors: NFC, HealthKit, HomeKit, LED Sensors, barometers. Will they portend the beginning of yet another big data assault that will impact geospatial professionals? Will they catapult the “connected home” or “quantified self” craze? How will we use these data? Will standards be part of the adoption and who will own them?
