GPS Operations for AMAS

Alabama Mutual Aid System (AMAS) team members that obtain, enter, use GPS coordinates or setup GPS units for other team members should have an in-depth knowledge of the GPS units, systems, and issues that effect accuracy. Team members should also have an in-depth knowledge of paper maps used by the Planning Section and the ability to both get GPS coordinates from the paper map and place GPS coordinates onto the paper maps. This course is designed to provide the training to address these issues.
