Pictometry Trainings

Funding agency:

Department Of Justice


Project Description:

Through federal funding NCBC acquired 2007 high resolution imagery for the state of Mississippi from Pictometry International as well as the Electronic Field Study Software (EFS) which allows the imagery to not only be viewed but permits its users to make annotations on the imagery, take measurements, and overlay county GIS data.

Project Outcomes: 

 Beginning June 2008, the National Center for Biodefense Communications conducted Electronic Field Study training workshops around the State of Mississippi. Training sessions were conducted in 35 counties resulting in over 330 personnel trained. The training delivery also established grounded working relationships between NCBC/JSU and emergency management professionals through-out the state.
