Business Problem Solved

The day after Hurricane Matthew hit, we lost our server connection due to a network failure, and it was going to take too long to repair for our damage assessment teams to wait. We had to come up with an immediate solution for collecting data in the field. In less than 30 mins, we used several templates from ArcGIS Online to recreate our feature layers, web maps and dashboards. We pushed this information out through Collector for ArcGIS, and teams simply had to switch to the new map with the ArcGIS Online technology-hosted features.

Technology Implemented

ArcGIS Online, Collector, GeoForms, Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS and several feature layer templates (Damage Assessment, Road Closure).
