Outreach Tracker with GIS and maps
Tim, April, Peter, Chris, & Co
Outreach teams bring supplies to camps, but there is no record, so sometimes resources are given twice at one location, but not at all at another location. Issue: Don’t want to keep exact locations, just general areas, so others can’t use the map to find and sweep camps.
- Better identify areas for immediate outreach (pre-campsite clean ups, severe weather, etc.)
- Reduce duplication of services
- Collect data to inform future outreach strategies
Divide the city into outreach zones; Outreach staff take tablets (?) and record what resources are distributed. Other organizations have access to synchronize efforts around contact and supplies. Zones have pop-ups that outreach staff can view that lists donations and needs.In the future, outreach teams could gather data to share. April and Tim are going to keep working on this.
