Yesterday’s featured post on the Hexagon Geospatial blog focuses on the post-disaster survey in Baton Rouge, LA, after Hurricane Gustav in 2008. The main tool was their Mobile Mapworks, a portable GIS data editor for iOS and Android devices. You can download the full mobile version to evaluate (or go to iTunes Store or Google Play Store on your devices). To use the complete product you need to contact Hexagon Geospatial to purchase the server side. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Portable GIS dynamic vector apps are a good, fast, first start in disaster surveys when LiDAR surveys are not economical or just delayed in processing for more detailed data.
