Overview

When Hurricane Matthew roiled along the eastern Florida coast in October, 2016, it was all hands on deck in the cities of Jacksonville and St. Augustine. Although the storm did not come ashore in Florida, high winds and an approximately ten foot high storm surge caused major flooding and extensive damage to transportation infrastructure. Attend this session and hear about how city and county governments relied on GIS data and analytics to facilitate their response and recovery efforts.
