The Florida HAZUS User Group, FEMA, and the Florida Division of Emergency Management announce training the week of November 17-21 at 3 locations in Florida. This free training will allow emergency managers and GIS managers to better build and share data for use with HAZUS.
The HAZUS-MH Comprehensive Data Management System (CDMS) web portal will make it much easier for HAZUS users to import and manage Level 1 datasets for use with HAZUS analyses. The CDMS web portal allows the user to manage the same datasets that are managed through the CDMS desktop version: 1) Site specific inventory; 2) General building stock; and 3) Building specific data, including building attributes. The CDMS web portal has two important features that are valuable to Florida applications: 1) as a web-based tool with little software requirements, it will increase the user base in Florida; and 2) the web portal has role based security feature, which means that user roles can be defined, an important feature in statewide data management. The hands-on training will highlight these features and capabilities in the CDMS web portal. 
Tuesday, November 18---Tallahassee <> 

Thursday, November 20---Daytona Beach <> 

Friday, November 21---Fort Lauderdale

For those who are unfamiliar with HAZUS, please note that this course will only include a brief review of HAZUS and is not an Introduction to HAZUS course! But experience with HAZUS-MH is also not a pre-requisite! 
City, county, and state GIS staff involved in building facility and property appraiser databases stand to gain the most from this training opportunity.
Please feel free to re-post and pass this along to others.
