Resources Shared

During the early stage of emergency response operations, collecting data about immediate needs and who needs help is key to every operation. Tracking how these changing needs get resolved for any recovery site can be difficult. Spatial Network’s Fulcrum Platform provides an easy and adaptable mobile solution for humanitarian aid and disaster response teams worldwide. This webinar is an opportunity to learn data collection and data processing in the field with NetHope and Team Rubicon’s field operations team and Spatial Networks Product leadership.

Our presenters will share lessons learned from using Fulcrum and teach participants the basics of how to install and build a data collection application, and then collect and analyze data using Fulcrum. Attendees will learn the following:

  • Basic and advanced Fulcrum tools used in disaster response
  • Key integrations used to document and map your recovery zone
  • NetHope/Team Rubicon use case examples
  • The Dos and Don'ts of geospatial field data collection
