Looking over the edge: Bridging the gaps between geospatial data, cloud computing, and local disaster response organizations

In this talk we look at the challenges of making geospatial data accessible and rapidly consumable in disaster response scenarios. The wide variety and large volume of commercial and public data available in AWS coupled with scalable edge computing and communication devices allows for unprecedented data access, delivery and integration with in-situ data collection. We’ll discuss user interface challenges, the “15 minute” guidance, and integrating critical data from NASA, NOAA, MAXAR, and Facebook onto field ready snowball edge devices.
