Track: Disaster and Emergency Management
Authors: Matt Pennells
After a natural disaster there is often a loss of communication. However stakeholders still need to see and share a common operational picture to make lifesaving aid decisions. Challenge - delivering an interactive map kiosk in an area destroyed by natural disaster with only a laptop and wifi router.
Results - Easri based hardware and software stack. Delivers a map gallery, interactive map & data sharing so everyone has the latest maps of the disaster.
The audience see the art of the possible.
