ArcGIS Online as a Flood Recovery Application
Track: ArcGIS for Organizations
Authors: Lisa Shertz
The City of Longmont, CO used ArcGIS Online and the Collector app as flood assessment and recovery tools. The question was how to get information to those who needed it. GIS was the answer, due to the spatial nature of the data and the database’s ability to store photos and documents. ArcGIS Online web maps got the information in to the most hands quickly: engineers at their desks and in the field, City staff meeting with meeting with other local and federal government agencies, and the public.
