In the News: Kevin Mickey, Director of Professional Development and Geospatial Technology Education at The Polis Center (IUPUI), to Present a Workshop on Flood Hazard Modeling in Washington

Kevin Mickey, of The Polis Center (IUPUI), is co-presenting a custom built workshop on flood hazard modeling in Olympia, Washington from June 11-14. This workshop, funded by FEMA through the Washington Department of Natural Resources, will seek to provide guidance to risk analysts on how to use geospatial tools and methods to model and mitigate a variety of flood hazards to include riverine flooding as well as coastal flooding induced by storms or tsunamis resulting from earthquakes. This workshop is envisioned to be a pilot for a series of similar custom built workshops held in this region and elsewhere in the country.
