NAPSG Foundation Virtual Training: FDNY & Super Bowl XLVIII 

Please join us for an inside-the-hood training session on how the Fire Department City of New York (FDNY) developed and utilzed geospatial capabilties during the most recent Super Bowl.  This training session will be led by Captain Steven Pollackov.

The week leading up to Super Bowl XVLIII brought dozens of venues and hundreds of scheduled events/activities to the New York City area, transforming Midtown Manhattan into Super Bowl Blvd for millions of attendees.  The FDNY Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Unit worked with PenBay Solutions to create a new Event Web/Mobile Map Management Solution to visualize the events, locate special event resources and provide necessary information to FDNY resources.

These events/activities provided challenges for the FDNY, some of which will be discussed in the training session.  In addition, the FDNY had to coordinate with various Local, State, Bi-State (New York/New Jersey) and Federal agencies for planning purposes.  To aid other agencies, the FDNY GIS Unit was able to share the Event Web/Mobile Map Management Solution with these agencies - providing further evidence of the collaborative capabilities of GIS.

Register Now! As with all NAPSG training sessions, there is no cost to participate.  But, please register early as capacity is limited and our sessions normally reach capacity very quickly.

**To our Denver friends, we promise that no video of the actual game will be played...
