On January 9, just a month after the Thomas Fire began and subsequently burned much of the area above Montecito and Carpinteria, the Santa Barbara South Coast’s first major winter storm triggered widespread mudslides and debris flows, destroying dozens of homes and leading to multiple fatalities. ZWORLD GIS quickly deployed emergency GIS support for the agencies immediately impacted and needing spatial intelligence to aid in the analysis of loss/damage, help provide operational direction/priority, and assist in the process of recovery. ZWORLD GIS shares insight into the strategy that assisted with the assessment, response, and recovery of this extraordinary event using GIS.
