Grand prize winners Micah Cleveland and Larry Wilbourn won with their submission of Mobile Damage Assessment.
The winning team created a solution to help first responders by displaying and reporting damaged structures and injured personnel in emergency situations. The main goal of their submission is to help triage wounded patients and provide first responders with a view of critical information.
We are partnered with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) to bring you the very first ExpeditionHacks hackathon! We are eager to bring together the best and brightest to hack unclassified geospatial datasets and open source tools in an effort to collaborate towards more useful and efficient solutions for disaster response and recovery.
We are interested in working with participants to identify and create new, interactive and efficient ways of reading, disseminating, and analyzing tons of data from disparate systems. We highly encourage leveraging open source tools and other software solutions participants bring to the table. This hackathon is not just for those entrenched in the geo world! We’re interested in everything from new mapping interfaces, mobile solutions, light-weight and portable information dashboards, hardware integrations with commercial off-the-shelf tools like sensors and UAVs and everything in between!
