GIS on Fire - Brimstone IC Through the Eyes of an Old Rookie

July lightning sparked the start of a long, hot season of fires in southern Oregon. With so many fires and too few GIS-ers, the opportunity to provide GIS services to the Oregon Department of Forestry was as unexpected and exciting as the lightning itself. In this presentation, Gena will share her experiences working with GIS Team 3. Weaving an emphasis of agency collaboration, data sharing and standards, she will tell the story of a seasoned analyst and one-time firefighter dropped in the middle of incident command without a flotation device.
