Crowdsourcing App for Hurricane Harvey Available Now

August 26, 2017 – The National Alliance for Public Safety GIS (NAPSG) Foundation launched a crowdsourcing application to help collect images taken from the field during and after Hurricane Harvey.

  • If you are on the ground in the impact area, you can contribute your images 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 requests
    • 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!
