NYC Rapid Repairs Program - Utilizing GIS for Hurricane Sandy Relief
Track: Disaster and Emergency Management
Authors: Ben Holt, Eric Haseltine
CB&I was contracted shortly after Hurricane Sandy made landfall to provide overall program management support for the Rapid Repairs Program. CB&I’s Geospatial and Information Management team provided an integral piece acting as the “pivot point” on how/when/where/what properties would be accessed for quick and efficient repairs. GIS, along with a robust data management process, made it possible to get 15,000+ people back in their homes quickly during the winter months of the US northeast.
