Hazard Reporting Project

Summer is officially ending over here at Drexel, and PHEEL had its first meeting of 2016-2017 on Friday September 16th. As I mentioned back in June, about two-thirds of our team graduated (yay!! + what?!) so this meeting focused on regrouping and setting an agenda for the year. We have a few key items to focus on this fall →

+ Kathryn McNamara will have an article draft for us to review on October 7

+ We’ll also be continuing work on the white paper

+ Creating guidelines for collaborators and collaboration, as well as writing a mission statement

+ Playing around with the idea of a data menu (great idea Britt Salen!)

We reconvene on October 14th to discuss Kathryn’s article draft!


(Here is an ESRI map that Bhavika Patel has been working on; it documents Russ Zerbo’s everyday hazard reporting using Philly311. The map is still in the works but I’m pretty jazzed about what we’re learning through Bhavika and Russ’s work.)
