The first phase of this project involved a collaboration with the Homeland Security Advisory Council at Pepperdine University’s School of Public Policy. Making use of their existing crisis resource map, deployed for Covid-19, some of the LAUSD data was verified, reformatted and made available to the public within two weeks. To prevent cluttering their data layers, only the most relevant and congruous data was passed to Pepperdine. Most of the data excluded consisted of LAUSD resources that are non-location specific (online only), which made them incompatible with a purely map based solution. To overcome these limitations, a stand-alone, LAUSD hosted solution would be necessary.
