VanuaGIS and a Geospatial Response to Cyclone Winston
Track: Disaster and Emergency Management
Authors: Phil Woods, Leba Gaunavinaka
VanuaGIS is Fiji's new mapping/ property information platform. It was developed primarily with Esri's Web AppBuilder technology. Utilising a predominantly out-of-the-box solution, VanuaGIS was easily reconfigured to assist with the geospatial response to Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston, during February of 2016. VanuaGIS proved to be an invaluable resource and the experience has highlighted the numerous benefits a common geospatial platform provides response and relief efforts.
