WEBINAR: Mobile Mapping - An Introduction to Avenza Maps

Presented by Jason Hattersley, USDA Forest Service

This webinar hosted by the Consortium of Appalachian Fire Managers & Scientists will provide an overview of how you can use the Avenza Map System as a tool in the field for wildfires and controlled burns. Avenza is becoming popular on firelines because it has made mobile GIS technology easy to access across devices. It allows for quick transfer of information with downloadable maps, easy search functions, and GPS tracking abilities. Our speaker, Jason Hattersley is the Timber Sale Administrator for the George Washington Jefferson National Forest. He has extensive experience as a wildland firefighter and using the Avenza system on the ground. The 30 minute presentation will include Jason's suggestions based on his experience using the Avenza system followed by a Q&A. Please join us at 11 AM EST at
