Take note of the following note from the Foundation for Advancement in Conservation’s Emergency Programs Coordinator Jessica Unger:
“I’m excited to share that, with support from NEH, we’ll be offering a free webinar for the AFR community about mapping cultural resources.
The program will take place on Wednesday, February 19th from 2:00-3:00 pm EST and will feature Deidre McCarthy Chief of the Cultural Resource GIS Facility (CRGIS) at the National Park Service and a case study from Cliff Landis, Digital Initiatives Librarian at the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library.
The webinar will cover:
· How do we apply spatial technologies (document, integrate, visualize, share data; compliance with historic preservation laws; inventory creation; mitigation of adverse effects)?
· Why are spatial data standards important? What platforms for data collection/creation should be used to comply with federal, state and local standards? What role do data sharing agreements play?
· How can volunteers and private non-profits work with jurisdictions and emergency managers to provide critical information before, during and after a disaster?
· How can emerging and changing technologies become tools for disaster response and recovery?

As with past webinars, if you can’t join live, then a recording will be shared with you afterwards. Hope to “see” you there!”
