We believe wildfire survivors and recovery partners need easy access to information—with solid metrics to track recovery. FRC has developed a visual way to navigate the recovery on a community level. We call this tool the Almeda Fire Loss and Recovery Dashboard.
The Dashboard uses geographic information system (GIS) technology to organize layers of information into visualizations using maps, public data, and community surveys. By exploring the Dashboard, you can find targeted information about specific neighborhood types within the Almeda Fire area.
Community members can click on their Recovery Zone in the map to understand the unique situation of that particular neighborhood, and then find statistics about the specific community type (single/multi- family residential, agricultural/rural residential, or business). For example, you will be able to navigate to your neighborhood to find rebuilding data, recovery information, upcoming housing projects, damage details, and impacts to the business community. With this unique capability, the Almeda Fire Loss and Recovery Dashboard can reveal deeper insights into data—such as patterns, relationships, and situations—helping multiple stakeholders make smarter decisions.
This year, we are expanding the Loss & Recovery Project to include not only the Dashboard, but also multimedia storytelling that explores the past, present, and future of our local recovery. Stay tuned and visit frequently, and meanwhile, you can explore the dashboard or learn more about the creation of this tool here.
