In March 2014, after a month of heavy rainfall, a massive landslide wiped out a rural community near Oso, Washington. The tragic event destroyed homes and highways, dramatically altered the landscape, and caused the deaths of 43 people. It was one of the deadliest slides to ever occur in the United States.
In this lesson, you'll take on the role of a county official tasked with spreading awareness of the disaster. Using imagery of the affected area, you'll create a web mapping application that allows users to easily compare the area before and after the disaster. You also want users to be able to measure the extent of the impact. Lastly, the app should link to additional material about the landslide.
ArcGIS Online offers several configurable templates to turn web maps into apps, but to ensure your app includes everything you want and nothing you don't, you'll build a custom app using Web AppBuilder.
