Arctic GIS

The Arctic All-Hazards GIS Platform


The project team is working with stakeholders to design, develop, and implement a web-based geospatial tool in an ArcGIS Online format. Through regular interaction with stakeholders, the project team is identifing critical needs and develop a tool that meets the demand caused by the increased activity in the Arctic domain and provide a tool for comprehensive domain awareness for Arctic operators. The project will proceed through six phases:

1- Identify present limitations of user experience (U/X) and user interface (U/I) in the presently available systems and will recommend ways forward

2- Collecting underlying data and building the web application

3- Alpha release

4- Beta releases

5- Transition tool to government stakeholders

6- Verification and validation period where we will repeat the U/X and U/I testing from phase one on the new application to determine how our findings from earlier in the project improved the application.
