eMap Field Training Session Slide 2 Housekeeping Presentation method and training materials Goals To understand eMap Field capability To be familiar in the use of eMap Field Course Description Slide 3 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 eMap - Background Slide 4 eMap Field (1 hr) Training framework: Getting Started The interface System Overview Functionality Course content Slide 5 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 What is eMap Field? Slide 6 eMap Field Slide 7 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 Getting Started Slide 8 Top Panel Left Panel File menu and I Want To menu Extent Tools Show/Hide Outer Panels Map Scale Right Panel Show/Hide Certain Panels Connectivity Indicator Bottom Panel Map Display Navigation Tools The Interface Slide 9 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 System Overview Slide 10 Top 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 eMap Field Panels Slide 11 Left 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 eMap Field Panels Slide 12 Show/Hide Outer Panels Allows you to show/hide all outer panels Show/Hide Certain Panels Allows you to show/hide a particular panel Access Panels Slide 13 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 New Session Slide 14 File menu I Want To menu File & I Want To Menu Slide 15 Navigation 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 Getting Around Slide 16 Enter a place name partial or full Also select from list Zoom to location A point will display at the resulting location Searching Places Slide 17 Search by: 6 figure reference Easting/Northing Degrees, Minutes, Seconds Decimal Degrees Zooms to location A point will display at the resulting location Searching X,Y Slide 18 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 Analysis Slide 19 Import ShapeFiles Images Importing Slide 20 Add a new Observation via: - Top Panel -I Want To Menu -Hazards Tab Types of Observations Bushfire Flood/Storm Impact Hazmat Fire Investigation Add Observations Slide 21 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 - Email notification will send an email to eMap Field users notifying them of the observation - The data is then sent to eMap and will be displayed as a Field Observation Data Sharing Slide 22 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 Print & Export Slide 23 Scenario 1: Capturing a burnt area (E 649683, N 5793003) 1.Session Details: Role = Training 2.Navigate to the location of the burnt area. Use the location X/Y search to navigate to get there. 3.Add these observations; Point of Origin, Asset, Danger, Burnt Area 4.Create an observation showing the Fire Edge Active 5.Export these observations to KML 6.The fire is still growing at 2kph. Using the Planning tool, work out the potential impact area for the next 3 hours 7.What is the possible size of this potential impact area ? Exercise F1 Capturing Burnt Area Slide 24 Base Maps Made up of Mapscape (topo map)and Melways Overlay Has two subgroups: Local Remote Data Shared with eMap as a field observation Observations Has two subgroups: Local Remote data from eMap Screen Graphics Layers relating to tools used within the map Map Layers Slide 25 Start/Stop GPS GPS coordinate readout Ability to change the GPS settings Add Observation point at GPS location Quick action buttons Using the GPS Slide 26 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) Quick Buttons Slide 27 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 Z55 243731 5739091. 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 -36 48.74, 147.13.47 Share the landslide observation that you have created Exercise F2 Data Collection Slide 28 Latitude/Longitude readouts: 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: Kilometers 2 (km 2 ) Hectares (ha) Meters 2 (m 2 ) Miles 2 (mi 2 ) Acres (ac) Settings Slide 29 For more help please view the eMap Field Blog: http://emap-central.blogspot.com.au/ Videos, manuals, cheat sheets are available Help Todd Gretton [email protected] Harry Smiles [email protected] u PH: 9262 8554
