Interactive Map Shows Impact of Colorado Flooding

Esri has developed a map to show how various communities in Colorado from Boulder to Colorado Springs have been affected by the recent flooding, which has claimed seven lives and uprooted thousands more. Accessible here, the interactive map includes information about water disruptions and FEMA shelters, along with a link to the top 50 citizen observations by location.

In addition, a public information map incorporates flooding information—such as locations and warning areas, statistics and current precipitation—continuously updated by the National Weather Service (NWS) for all U.S. states.

Esri notes that visitors to the website can also view the real-time effects of the flooding via social media posts. Instructions about how to activate this functionality are available on www.esri.com.
