Natural Hazard Resiliency Experts

We perform an important function in assessing different types of vulnerabilities and needs for local, state, tribal and federal government, the private sector, and nonprofits. We reinforce community efforts to prevent or reduce losses from natural disasters by combining geospatial analysis, modeling, and outreach activities. Our disaster (or crisis) informatics initiatives support disaster preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery activities. We design and develop open source as well as Esri technology-driven information systems through which to explore the interconnectedness of people, place, community, information, and technology. We also design and implement research to assess the physical, social and economic impacts of hazards. For more information, please download our Geoinformatics general information brochure, multihazard mitigation planning brochure, and Geoinformatics expertise flyer.

The Polis Center at IUPUI plays a critical role in solving complex community-centered problems, using spatial data, with a focus on supporting disaster mitigation and responsiveness to climate change and its repercussions.

Our strengths are in developing multi-hazard mitigation plans (MHMP); developing FEMA Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) compliant flood data, maps, and documents; modeling the economic and social effects of natural disasters and planning activities to mitigate them; collaborating with local experts to understand and apply results for place-based community solutions; performing spatial analysis; and creating ArcGIS Online dashboards, story maps, and applications to effectively communicate with stakeholders.

Polis also collaborates with the Indiana Department of Homeland Security and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, with which we are a federally recognized Cooperating Technical Partner (CTP), to address ways to understand and mitigate the risk of flooding and to develop required mitigation plans in a number of Indiana counties.

Polis is a leader in disaster mitigation for greater resiliency and responsiveness to the impact of climate change.
