The MapFolio web platform has several unique features including dashboards indicating ISD project health and projects at risk, tools for filtering, sharing and exporting the data in raw form as well as in chart, graph, or map form. Using this new tool, users are able to visualize federated geospatial data located throughout Red Cross International Services in conjunction with spatial and secondary data from the organization’s existing ECOS (Salesforce) system and the Red Cross database.
The main users for this visualization tool are the project managers, who go into the platform on a daily basis to view the status of their projects. Other users identified for this tool were decision-makers needing an overview of the current situation or disaster area.
We also added filtering capabilities, and the ability to write your own query (for the more technical user).
