ArcGIS Online to increase youth access to service providers in Wake,NC
Track: ArcGIS for Organizations
Authors: Thomas Ray, Jake Evans, Nicole Solera
Wake County, NC has abundant assets for youth; however, youth access to assets did not reflect the abundance. Our team used an ArcGIS Online web app to raise awareness of neighborhood assets. GIS enables youth to visualize their proximity to critical service providers. The web app enables youth to gather important information about the asset to ensure a fit and easily access the asset. Community providers are embedding the web application in their websites. The method can be replicated.
