Available Now! Hurricane Maria Crowdsourcing Photo App

September 19, 2017 – The National Alliance for Public Safety GIS (NAPSG) Foundation launched a crowdsourcing application to help collect photos and images taken by citizens on the ground during and after Hurricane Maria.

  • If you are on the ground in the impact area (and are safe!), you can contribute your photos to the app very easily using your mobile device.
  • You can also use the app if you are trying to assess the type and extent of damage in the impacted areas to:
    • Prepare for mutual aid response
    • Support situational assessment
    • Aid operational readiness for deployment to the field
    • Other response and recovery functions

Check it out, share it around, and if you are there – contribute!
