Case Study - Department of Transportation
“Futurity allowed us to get out in the field and be able to do the assessments in person. It really helped out to be able to collect the information we needed right there… we have a lot of rural areas in our county with no cell service so being able to use the mobile app offline was a huge help.”
– Melissa Penn, Disaster Prep, Marion County
Road and Surface Damage
Marion County was hit by a historic flood which caused widespread damage to the County’s roads and surface area. In previous flooding events, damage assessments were done using cameras which provided GIS location of the incidents, but lacked the ability to provide meaningful context or a comprehensive picture of the overall response and recovery effort.
How We Helped
By Leveraging the Futurity Platform, the Damage Assessment Team were able to complete a comprehensive roads damage assessment and bring together the full picture of where the damage was and which areas of the community were affected. This allowed the County to streamline their damage assessment reports to the State of Arkansas, ask for additional support, and take steps to prepare for the future in the event of additional flooding within the impacted areas.
