Making the Depth Grids Dance: Augmented Reality (AR) in FEMA RiskMAP
Track: Disaster and Emergency Management
Authors: kingsley allan
Augmented Reality (AR) refers to the creation of a digital layer that appears overlaid onto the real world when viewed through a smart phone. Marketers are adopting AR, but the scientific community has hardly begun to imagine the applications and benefits. Experimentally ISWS has set high flood risk map areas as triggers so that the view through the phone is superimposed with a depth grid animated to cycle through the flood frequencies with a button linked to other ArcGIS Online content.
