Setup AWS map services for wildfire assessments

In 2020 the total of wildfire burned acreage is 6.6 million acres in the Western States, which is the most in a single year since records have been kept. It's critical for organizations to quantify and plan for catastrophic events like fires. This course shows you how to setup an ArcGIS installation on AWS to house historical fire data to be used by regional stakeholders for fire planning.


LET'S GET STARTED
  • Draw an architecture diagram
  • Create an AWS account and provision a server
  • Install an ArcGIS Enterprise deployment
  • Install Notebook Server and ArcGIS Pro
  • Configure instance, ports, users, permissions, alarms
  • Mine historical wildfire data and imagery
  • Analyze high risk fire areas
  • Create a backup strategy

About the Instructor

Aaron Kochman has a Master's Degree in GIS Science from California State University - Long Beach and is currently the GIS Manager at the Fort Ord, CA cleanup.  He has worked on a variety of enterprise projects that have utilized UAVs, LiDAR, virtual reality, data science, and web architecture.  He has extensive experience with Esri products including ArcGIS Enterprise, ArcGIS Portal, ArcGIS Server, and ArcGIS Pro. As a private consultant, organizations rely on him to deploy cloud GIS serving architecture.

  • Why my course is useful

Almost every organization relies on cloud architecture for all their data and applications.  This course gives the IT person a grounding in the world of GIS data, applications, and analysis.  And it gives the GIS person a grounding in the IT architecture offered through AWS.

  • Why I built it

College was great, but I learned most of my technical skills outside of the college classroom.  My experience was gained through trial and error and I sought out bootcamps and shortcourses to learn tech quickly.  I’m excited about the future of GIS, cloud computing, and data science, and I’d like to inspire young talent around the globe to join this amazing career field.   

  • What I hope for you?

You are about to be cross-trained with talents in IT/GIS/Cloud.  I’m a great example where this talent quickly pushed me up the professional ladder.  I’m confident that this portfolio item will get you a job!

What people are saying

So much value in one place!

"At Bootcamp GIS, I can point to a course and tell my staff that you need to learn ‘That’. I can’t do that with any of the vendor courses because there is a huge gap between learning software functions rather than learning solution implementations." 

Missy Stanton - GIS Coordinator

Finally!

"Finally! Classes that provide real GIS learning like we get from YouTube everyday. I’ve been dissatisfied for years with the contrived exercises that I see in all the ESRI manuals." Brian Clapper - GIS Analyst  

Real-world courses

"My professors used to do GIS before Web GIS was in existence so our curriculum is out of date. The courses I have taken on the Bootcamp GIS platform are so much more useful than my school’s lab exercises where I have learned to digitize a line and generate a buffer. I could have learned that in 30 min rather than the focus of a whole semester." Caleb Worley - GIS Graduate Student
