Hurricane Harvey hit Texas in August 2017. It caused an estimated 125 billion dollars in damage and destroyed 12,700 homes. In cases of major disasters, multiple organizations work together to assess the damage. Collecting and sharing information efficiently is necessary for these organizations to make informed decisions.
In these lessons, you'll use multiple ArcGIS apps to create, collect, and share hurricane damage assessments of residential buildings. First, you'll create a feature service in ArcGIS Pro to contain the assessments. Then, you'll create two surveys in Survey123 for ArcGIS for field workers to complete. One survey will be for first responders and the other will be for detailed damage assessors. Then, you'll prepare a map in Collector for ArcGIS so local governments can see all damaged residential buildings throughout the city. To manage the data, you'll create a dashboard in Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS to show locations of and information about the damage assessments.
To assist you with the workflow, you'll deploy an ArcGIS solution that provides map, survey, and feature service templates.
