Coastal Resilience Challenge 2016
The Coastal Resilience Challenge asked us to design a mobile application that empowers the Hampton Road community when dealing with flood and hazard mitigation planning. By performing research and stakeholder interviews, the team was able to identify major issues affecting cities impacted by floods such as a heavy reliance on emergency dispatchers, citizens not knowing where to find hyper-local information, and small business owners who often lack an emergency plan. Using what they learned, the team decided to address these key issues by building three separate applications. Each application aims to benefit a segment of the Hampton Roads community: citizens, small business owners, and emergency responders/local governments.
