SC Residents' Damage Reporter APP now available

October 10, 2015

This tool allows residents in South Carolina to help report and map flood damage using smart devices.  The purpose of the APP is to identify the extent to which damage has occurred in the state that may or may not be reported using the resident's own self-reports of damage. We are interested in not only the location, but photographs and other relevant information such as families in need, areas of flooding, high water marks, damaged housing, buildings, infrastructure like roads and bridges, flooded vehicles and so on.  This citizen science effort will help show the wide geographic range of impacts from this disaster.

Here's the information for downloading and use:
