This lesson is intended for users who will be collecting and editing preplan and assessments (non-incident) map features in Intterra.

Additional Resources 

  • We can share guides and training documents that have been created by other clients.

Instructor notes: 

  • There are not any "training" datasets or workspaces for preplans and assessments, which means practice will occur in the live system.  Please delete all practice collections when the training is finished.
  • Agencies may have specific how-to or process documents developed that discuss how and what to collect.  Contact your Project Manager with questions about agency-specific documentation.
