Google My Maps map of requests for volunteers Montreal-area floods, spring 2019

Google My Maps map of requests for volunteers Montreal spring floods

Created a Google My Maps map based on requests for volunteers that appeared in public Facebook groups including West Island Flood Volunteers and Entraide inondation Oka à Saint-Eustache. Worked with Facebook group admins and volunteers on maintaining the map, which was used in April and May to dispatch “spontaneous” (independent, civilian) volunteers where flood relief help and post-disaster assistance was needed. The map included links to resources for people affected by the floods and for people interested in helping them. It now contains historical data and has had over 30,000 views to date.
