CSJ Emerge: The Story of How We Built an App in a Day
Track: Disaster and Emergency Management
Authors: William Harmon, Chris Mills, Joel Clark
The City of San Jose had a problem, emergency crews responding to situations throughout the city during a major rain or flood event did not have good situational awareness. The departments of Transportation and Public Works responded to this problem by putting their best developers together in a room for a day and instructed them to design and build an app. The result was CSJ Emerge, an ArcGIS Online based situational awareness map app.
