Regional Technology Work Group Agenda – August 27, 2020 – 1:00 pm


Please join us virtually on Thursday for our monthly Technology Work Group agenda. Our meeting will focus on a Vendor presentation from Umanity, a software tool that matches needs and resources for streamlines disaster response operations. We will also have a demonstration of ArcGIS online from the GIS work gorup, including an overview of Survey123 and how it can be used for damage assessment. For those who are unable to attend, notes will be sent out as normal.
