Working with GISCorps on the hurricane story mapping missions has been an incredible adventure. As part of the Admin Team, we were tasked with assessing and evolving the crowdsourcing applications for usability, while contributing and vetting storm imagery. The experience provided the opportunity to work outside the confines of my typical projects, meet other GISers, and acquire new skills along the way. As an unexpected bonus, I have learned heaps about meteorology, emergency preparedness, and disaster relief as well!
Mapping disasters is a humbling experience and I am grateful and proud to be part of this positive crowdsourcing community.
