GIS-Pro 2020 has ended
Welcome to URISA’s GIS-Pro 2020 — A special virtual edition for challenging times.
We invite you to review the agenda, block your calendar, and join us virtually for URISA’s 58th Annual Conference. Our community has always been resilient and eager to help each other through a crisis. Be engaged. Ask questions. Explore solutions. Make the most of this opportunity. Be safe.

Workshops will be presented ’live’ on September 23 & 24 and after GIS-Pro on October 6 & 7. Attendance at one workshop is included with full registration.

Note that all times in this online agenda are presented in CENTRAL Time (URISA’s office is in Chicago).

You must be registered to access the online platform (which is not this Sched agenda).

Jared Doke

NAPSG Foundation
Program Specialist
Jared Doke currently works for the National Alliance for Public Safety GIS (NAPSG) Foundation supporting FEMA and multiple state and local agencies. His background is diverse, yet revolves around a common theme—public safety. After receiving an associate degree in Fire Science from a community college close to home, he attended Washburn University and dual majored in Criminal Justice and Anthropology. As an undergrad, he volunteered at a fire department where he would later become a full-time firefighter, gaining invaluable experiences as an active member of the dive and technical rescue teams. During this time, he completed an M.A. in Geography with an emphasis in GIS and focused his thesis on lost person behavior in Yosemite National Park. He went on to intern at Esri and gained experience applying GIS to real-world situations through wildfire response and work with a Nevada Type 3 Incident Management Team. He was also given the opportunity to teach GPS courses throughout the state of Kansas for Midwest Search and Rescue and to serve as a member of the Kansas GIS Response Team. More recently, he spent four years as a contractor for the National Park Service conducting wildfire risk assessments on park facilities nationwide to support the Wildfire Risk Assessment project.
