Increasing Community Resilience with Open Data, Analytics and the Crowd

Originally Aired: Thursday, June 26, 2014
Time: 08:00 AM PT | 11:00 AM ET

Communities are facing increasingly complex disasters, and reducing disaster risk is key to boosting community resilience. GIS technology plays a unique role in reducing risk and preparing citizens.

From storm surge planning zones in Miami-Dade County that provide a more targeted approach to evacuations, to tsunami evacuation maps in San Diego County that are designed to enhance citizen understanding, the use of GIS technology has changed dramatically in recent years.

Learn how a modern, open and configurable GIS approach helps you to prepare, respond and recover more quickly in times of disaster.

  • Using open data with simple, focused tools to model risk and vulnerability
  • Analyzing at risk areas for a better understanding of the community profile
  • Bolstering community resilience through geo-targeted communication and maps
  • Engaging citizens to crowd source community preparedness efforts
Register today to hear from top emergency management experts on improving your technologies for a better prepared tomorrow!
