seeing hazards and maintenance issues in public spaces that are left unattended, may cause injury to the public or get worse and cost more to fix. Accurately and quickly reporting these things is too difficult or too troublesome for most members of the public
What it does
Straight-through reporting of risks and hazards to most appropriate authority/agency based on geo-location. Using a simple web app to pinpoint (GIS geolocate) hazards or maintenance issues with point and click simplicity. Live reporting, message routing and aggregation of hazards. Statistics on time to fix and league table for best performing municipalities.
How we built it
Worked closely to leverage the ESRI developer platform and APIs to capture precision location coordinates. Visual mapping app integration for point and click locale verification and instant hazard recording to backend database for logging and analytics.
Challenges we ran into
compressing all that we achieved into a 60 second pitch/demo!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Successfully leveraging esri into an extensible app and platform that connects with a wide public audience, for 'public good'. Statistical modelling also incentivises stakeholders, both public and private, to remedy faults and reduce risk.
What we learned
The power of GIS via ESRI for DevOps.
What's next for HazMap
Beta release, testing dashboard and integration with municipalities and their contractors.
