BCSARA is extremely pleased to have ESRI on board as our Gold Sponsor for SARScene 2013 to be held in Chilliwack later this month


MapSAR is a free tool that runs with ArcGIS 10 and 10.1 to store geospatial information, enabling SAR maps to be generated, stored, and printed quickly so that search teams can get out the door faster to look for the missing person.

This class is taught by experienced SAR instructor and GIS specialists to demonstrate how you can utilize MapSAR in your public safety operations.

In this class you will:

See how SAR and other public safety operations can benefit from GIS
