Report by Dave Hansen, GISP
The Esri software provided to me through the GIS Service Pledge program for 2018 was largely used in the support of the American Red Cross for a variety of programs. The American Red Cross had implemented ArcGIS Online in the independent portal RC View. The software was used to develop base map material and link services to RC View with ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Pro.
I am located in the Gold Country Region of the Red Cross. In 2018, this region experienced two devastating wildland fires, the Carr Fire and Camp Fire. Besides loss of homes in these fires, there was significant loss of life. A variety of map products and apps were generated during these incidents as well as other areas affected by natural disasters.
