Revisiting Mission Reporting and Search and Rescue Mapping for the MRA

Email Presenter

Presenter: Jon Pedder | MRA Webinar Series |
More and more MRA teams are entering their missions into the ArcGIS mapping system at http://msar.maps.arcgis.com/home/ for both reporting and search plan assistance. This system is paid for all MRA teams as part of the organization’s initiative to generate useable statistics.

Although data entry is very quick and self explanatory, Jon receives many questions about how to take full advantage of the system’s many features. He will answer many of these questions during this webinar.

Jon Pedder is a member of the Esri Disaster Response Program and is an active member of the Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team.
