Tomorrow, September 20, is the one year anniversary of Hurricane Maria destroying Puerto Rico.
Recovery is difficult for hurricane survivors given the extent of destruction and the many obstacles to getting back to normalcy. Financial resources for the massive reconstruction are limited.
The Problem: Local government agencies and other community organizations are experiencing a desperate need for current maps that show flood zones, landslide prone areas, transportation and other critical infrastructure which were heavily impacted throughout the island.
: Updated mapping will help local communities rebuild and plan for future disasters, as well as make important decisions about the sustainability of their communities.
Please help these small communities recover and prepare for the future, by funding travel expenses for GISCorps volunteers that will provide them with maps to aid in recovery planning.
A GoFundMe campaign has been started to help make this vision a reality. Donations are tax-deductible. Every little bit helps.
