Understanding Coordinate Systems and the Basics of GIS

April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Mapping crime locations when analyzing a case is not as simple as just putting dots on the map. Understanding coordinate systems and the basics of geographic information systems (GIS) are critical for furthering your investigation, deriving meaning from events, and helping verify raw data in your mapping software.

On April 14th, we are pleased to be joined by Lorie Velarde, GIS Analyst with the Irvine Police Department in California, for an introductory webinar on the basics of GIS.

In this presentation, you’ll learn about:
• Data needed for mapping
• Location data from providers
• Coordinate systems
• Cell phone ping data
• Measurement data
• Geocoding

* This webinar is limited to law enforcement only. Please register with your agency email.
** This webinar is eligible for a Certificate of Attendance. To receive a certificate, registrants must attend live. Certificates will be sent shortly after the webinar concludes.
