JAX Will Be Ready For URISA!
Jacksonville was recently impacted by record level storm surge from Hurricane Irma. The images of the St John's River overflowing were amazing.
Rest assured that the City and the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront will be ready for us. Our Hyatt contacts let us know that the lobby took on some water, so they have to do some work to freshen up the space and will re-open on October 3, well ahead of GIS-Pro!
So make your plans now if you haven't done so and start checking out the great dining options and attractions in the city. We've got a lot to talk about at the conference from Emergency Response and Disaster Assessment to GIS Strategic Planning and GISP Prep...and you need to be part of the discussion! #JAXStrong
Have you selected your
? Some of the courses are nearly full (particularly those on the topics of NextGen 9-1-1; Emergency Preparedness for GIS; and a Survey of FEMA's Hazus-MH Natural Hazard Loss Estimation Tool (which will introduce participants to the capabilities of Hazus-MH, a GIS-based risk assessment methodology and toolkit created by FEMA for analyzing potential impacts from floods, hurricanes and earthquakes). So don't delay much longer. Remember that attendance at ONE full or half-day workshop is included with your full conference registration - normally an additional fee.
