Details

  • Description: A grid overlay on top of an interactive map, allowing first responders' reports to be compiled on a color-coded map by the Emergency Management Agency. Archives historical response maps. Online at: http://gridmapper.herokuapp.com/ Open-sourced at: https://github.com/codeforamerica/gridmapper
  • Impact: This project was specifically requested by the director of Macon's Emergency Management Agency (EMA). Currently the EMA uses a paper map and colors in each grid square as reports come in from first responders. It can take as long as two weeks for the county-level GIS department to turn this into a digital report. These digital reports are needed to keep situational awareness and report to state and federal level responders.
