401. US National Grid (Class/Introductory) - Jason Warzinik & Matthew Smith, Boone County, MO
The U.S. National Grid, endorsed by FEMA and the U.S. military, is an easy to use reference system for identifying and finding locations nation-wide. The use of USNG enables responders from across jurisdictions and agencies to speak the same language for location information. During this workshop, students will learn the fundamental concepts of the US National Grid (USNG) and the importance it holds in responding to local and multi-jurisdictional incidents. Participants will also learn how to read USNG coordinates and locate them on a map, participate in an outdoor USNG navigation course, see how to include USNG in map book development in ArcMap, and be introduced to tools that are available to assist with the use of USNG. Students will participate in a critical incident exercise where they will perform various tasks using the skills obtained in this course. This course is meant to introduce staff to the grid before there is a need to use it in your County or agency.
402. Cartography (Lab/Introductory) - Shannon White, University of Missouri Extension
Crafting a strong message is the essence of cartography. What are you trying to say with your map? Presenting problems and solutions through geographic data and analysis can pose a number of challenges for the GIS professional. This hands-on workshop will provide an introduction to cartographic fundamentals: representing data through colors, symbols, text, labeling and annotations; creating layouts with an introduction to design and best practices; and sharing your print and web mapping products to achieve your cartographic goals.
403. Finding, Using, and Applying Census Data (Class/Introductory) - Matt Gerike, City of Columbia, MO

Participants are encouraged to bring laptops and work along. Having a spreadsheet program and a GIS program on the laptop will enhance the user experience.
404. 911 and the GIS Professional (Class/Intermediate) - Sherry Massey, Dickinson County, KS
When you dial 911, how does the call get to the correct dispatcher? In Next Generation 911, GIS is the answer to that question. This class will cover the role of the GIS Professional in 911. We will look at the many systems impacted by GIS in the 911 center. We will cover the basics of the current 911 call routing system and emerging NG911 call routing technologies. We will discuss the critical role of GIS in NG911 and the impact NG911 will have on GIS and the GIS Professional.
