Innovating Post-Disaster Safety Assessments with ArcGIS Online
Track: Emergency Management
Authors: Brian Blake
In 2015, the Central U.S. Earthquake Consortium created a “Safety Assessment App” for use following earthquakes and other disasters.
The app improves the efficiency, accuracy, and speed of safety assessments by digitizing the field data collection process using both the Esri Collector app and an AGOL GeoForm.
There is also an Operations Dashboard which provides allows emergency operations centers to receive status updates in real time.
The app and data model are shared through AGOL.
