1 eMap Field Training Session

2 Course Description Housekeeping
Presentation method and training materials Goals To understand eMap Field capability To be familiar in the use of eMap Field

3 eMap - Background Project called Emergency Map (eMap)
A joint initiative between DEPI & CFA and supported by SES & MFB eMap was initiated in response to recommendations from the Victorian Bushfire Royal Commission for agencies to standarise their operating systems and IT

4 Course content eMap Field (1 hr) Training framework: Getting Started
The interface System Overview Functionality

5 What is eMap Field? eMap Field is an application intended to capture and share field and incident data In a connected or disconnect environment Observations and tactical information can be added to the map Reads GIS data from a central database or from a USB Designed to easily create and view observations when out in the field

6 eMap – Field

7 Getting Started Upon the successful install of eMap Field, you can start up the application by tapping the icon eMap Field may also be running from a USB stick on a Windows device

8 The Interface Top Panel Extent Tools File menu and I Want To… menu
Show/Hide Outer Panels Navigation Tools Show/Hide Certain Panels Left Panel Map Display Show/Hide Outer Panels Right Panel Connectivity Indicator Map Scale Bottom Panel

9 System Overview eMap Field is made up of the following sections:
Panels and their corresponding Tabs File & I Want To… Menu Navigation and Extent Tools Search Tools Observation Tools

10 eMap Field Panels Top Panel Bottom Panel
Enables you to access key functions by displaying them as tabs within the Bottom Panel Bottom Panel Contains a series of tabs relating to GPS readouts, customisable interface settings and printing

11 eMap Field Panels Left Panel Right Panel
Enables you to start a new session Basic Analysis Display layers Enables you to search for location using: Location search X/Y search Right Panel Create new observations Edit observations

12 Access Panels Show/Hide Outer Panels Show/Hide Certain Panels
Allows you to show/hide all outer panels Show/Hide Certain Panels Allows you to show/hide a particular panel

13 New Session Before starting to create observations, the session details need to be filled out These details then remain populated for the session: Role Source Incident Name Details Update Details

14 File & I Want To… Menu File menu I Want To… menu

15 Getting Around Navigation Tools Extent Tools
slider will zoom in/out of the map allows change in direction and orientation Extent Tools allows for a fixed zoom extent zooming to the full extent of the map going back to the previous map extent

16 Searching – Places Enter a place name – partial or full
Also select from list Zoom to location A point will display at the resulting location

17 Searching – X,Y Search by: Zooms to location
6 figure reference Easting/Northing Degrees, Minutes, Seconds Decimal Degrees Zooms to location A point will display at the resulting location

18 Analysis Take measurements of:
Distance Area Radius Bearing tool measures the angle and distance of a line Planning Line tool shows distance intervals along a bearing which can be used in determining the spread of a hazard

19 Importing Import ShapeFiles Images

20 Add Observations Add a new Observation via: Types of Observations
- Top Panel - I Want To… Menu - Hazards Tab Types of Observations Bushfire Flood/Storm Impact Hazmat Fire Investigation

21 Data Sharing Once an observation has been created, it should be shared to the central database so other users can see it To share an observation: Open the Current Obs. Tab in the Right Panel Select tick the share box of an observation and click on the Share button Add metadata notification will send an to eMap Field users notifying them of the observation The data is then sent to eMap and will be displayed as a Field Observation

22 Print & Export Ability to print and export Print – to file
Export to KML KML can be loaded into Google Earth the data can be loaded into eMap by a mapping officer

23 Exercise F1 – Capturing Burnt Area
Scenario 1: Capturing a burnt area (E , N ) Session Details: Role = Training Navigate to the location of the burnt area. Use the location X/Y search to navigate to get there. Add these observations; Point of Origin, Asset, Danger, Burnt Area Create an observation showing the Fire Edge – Active Export these observations to KML The fire is still growing at 2kph. Using the Planning tool, work out the potential impact area for the next 3 hours What is the possible size of this potential impact area ?

24 Map Layers Base Maps Overlay Observations Screen Graphics
Made up of Mapscape (topo map)and Melways Overlay Has two subgroups: Local Remote – Data Shared with eMap as a field observation Observations Remote – data from eMap Screen Graphics Layers relating to tools used within the map

25 Using the GPS Start/Stop GPS GPS coordinate readout
Ability to change the GPS settings Add Observation point at GPS location Quick action buttons

26 Quick Buttons Quick Buttons act as ‘favourite’ observation types for quick and easy access To set a Quick Button (can set 8 in total): In the New Obs. Tab, select the observation type At the bottom of the New Obs. Tab, click on the number of the Quick Button that observation type will be assigned to To access the Quick Buttons, go to the Top Panel and select Quick Buttons (in portrait or landscape)

27 Exercise F2 – Data Collection
Scenario 2: Data Collection Navigate to your local area – X/Y search or location search to navigate to that location and create the observations listed below... Using the Observations, mark up: Dangers   Water Points Possible Traffic Control Points Assets of interest Once complete, mark up the following observations across the state Bridge unable to take load of a heavy appliance Z Water Sources in Murrayville – look for Water Tanks. Navigate to the township of Bogong  and mark up the location of the landslide that was recorded at , Share the landslide observation that you have created

28 Settings Latitude/Longitude readouts: Distance Units: Area Units:
• Degrees, Minutes, Seconds (DDD MM’ SS.SS”) • Degrees and Decimal Minutes (DDD MM.MMMM’) • Decimal Degrees (DD.DDDDD) Distance Units: Kilometers (km) Meters (m) Miles (mi) Nautical Miles (NM) Yards (yd) Area Units: Kilometers2 (km2) Hectares (ha) Meters2 (m2) Miles2 (mi2) Acres (ac)
