Prototyping crisis communications resilience solutions

Another year at UW HCDE, another great collaboration with a masters capstone group. Last year the students I worked with, did user research and prototyping to improve FEMA’s HAZUS loss estimation software. This year the capstone group was interested in developing solutions to help residents of a hazard-stricken area to be able to communicate with each other effectively and efficiently during the crisis phase. Check out their video and report below.
