Authored by: Jason Harshman & Marc Guidry – June 2017
GISCorps solicited volunteers Jason Harshman and Marc Guidry to assist Feeding America Riverside/San Bernardino (FARSB) in utilizing the Esri ArcGIS Online (AGO) platform to host and share geospatial content and applications. This included the development of their AGO portal, administration of the portal, creating content, and developing applications. This effort provided FARSB with an AGO portal that they can build upon with more content, apps, and services to share with their members.
