Esri Takes Climate Resilience App Challenge Global

Redlands, Calif., April 29, 2014—Esri announced today that the Esri Climate Resilience App Challenge 2014 is now open worldwide to developers of all types (government, technology firms, academic institutions, not for profits, startups, and individuals). This contest challenges all developers to create an app using the Esri ArcGIS Platform to help communities, see, understand, and prepare for climate risks. Esri will provide up to three winners with more than $15,000 in cash prizes. The deadline is June 2.

Developers are invited to submit apps showcasing how maps and location analytics can address challenges in public safety, transportation, economic development, healthcare, and more.

One great Climate Resilience-oriented app example is being deployed by the Denver Regional Council of Governments, which partnered with tech start-up Ride Amigos and Esri to create My Way to Go. This innovative web-based trip planning tool helps users compare travel options and see the health benefits and environmental impacts of transportation choices.

The winning apps will be featured at the Esri International User Conference, where more than 15,000 Esri users come together to share ideas and do their part to transform our world.
