The City of New Orleans is undergoing fast, and often unchecked reformations. Following Hurricane Katrina, the citizens were forced to evaluate and rebuild. However, pulling together disparate sources of information, freeing government data, and understanding the situation was difficult.

Individual organizations began to use readily available tools to capture and collect data. Flickr photos of historic buildings, online spreadsheets of demolition permits, collaborative mapping of citizens to discuss rebuilding neighborhoods and problem areas.

Through a mixture of awareness, coworking sessions, and the applications of higher-level tools, the various groups were able to pull the geospatial information together for advanced analysis and community planning.

This presentation will discuss the various emergent and coordinated processes that are used in the city to engage citizens and government. Through utilization of existing consumer services as well as lightweight geospatial tools and more complex GIS analysis the city is gaining understanding and the ability to move forward together.
