Floods and Storm Surges

Water-related events such as floods and storm surges cost billions of dollars of damages every year and force millions of people to defend their homes, their lives and their livelihoods. What can you code to help communities respond to floods?

Following a natural disaster, first responders need an effective solution to prioritize relief efforts when connectivity is lost. Project Owl, the Call for Code 2018 winner, addresses this with a network of quickly deployed hotspots that can gather vital information from people in need.
