We have seen over the past decade significant advances in flood inundation modeling due to advances in hydrological modeling software coupled with the availability of more accurate elevation data. But how is the accuracy flood hazard and risk maps established?

Honoring Veterans with GIS
November 10, 2013  by Matt Sheehan

 

WebMapSolutions have started honoring Veterans with GIS; story maps providing the perfect mechanism.

The Military Banners Program has been adopted by many US cities: honoring local veterans with banners hung along designated streets. WebMapSolutions wanted to share these banners with those being honored. Now those serving overseas can find and view their banner in a story map published over the Internet.

WebMapSolutions have adapted an existing story map to enable search and enhanced viewing capabilities for data from the city of Chino Hills. Data collection was done using Esri’s Offline Mobile Editing App.
