An article in the Harvard College Review of Environment & Society by Brad Kieserman, ARC Vice President of Disaster Operations and Logistics highlights how Red Cross has embraced technology. Gail McGovern has led the Red Cross effort to use the latest technologies to address humanitarian needs.  The Red Cross brought online a sophisticated technology platform called “RC View” – a state-of-the-art geographic information system and data visualization tool that provides a common disaster response capability to Red Cross and its partners. Using the latest cloud technology, GIS capabilities, and data enrichment,  "RC View"  provides a single platform to monitor and track disaster-related activities, aid in damage assessment, plan emergency response and evacuation, and understand relationships between the affected area and areas of social vulnerability.
