Virtual Training: Implementing Standard Incident Level Symbology

While national and international standards fulfill some symbol needs, gaps still exist in incident symbols and the supporting frameworks required to achieve a common language for communicating incident information. 

One Monday, September 18, 2017, the National Alliance for Public Safety GIS (NAPSG) Foundation hosted a virtual training on tools and methods for implementing the standardized incident symbology framework and symbol sets. The purpose of this training was to:

  • Learn what the standardized Incident Symbology Framework, Guideline, and Symbol Set are and their purpose
  • Learn how to use the Symbol Library Tool to support your public safety agency
  • Learn how to search and download symbols in multiple formats, and integrate them in your GIS
  • Gain insights on efforts underway in 2017 to expand the symbol set and enhance the Symbol Library Tool
  • Share ideas on potential enhancements to the Symbol Library Tool
