Disaster Surveyor is designed by and for international and domestic first responders for collecting information to help coordinate search and rescue operations. Using standard United Nations INSARAG forms, ability to attach photos, upload forms to a web-based manager, generate search markings, mark waypoints with standardized icons + UNOCHA approved icons, create tracks that can be exported to KML and GPX for import into ArcviewGIS or other mapping systems, Disaster Surveyor provides a complete solution to your disaster management team coordination needs.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Wifi only iPad does not have a dedicated Assisted GPS chip. The Wifi + Cellular version has the chip, but in the event of no Wifi signals and no Data signal areas (open ocean, high desert, steel/heavy concrete buildings), the GPS feature may not work. We recommend adding a dedicated GPS attachment for these purposes.

TEAM MANAGERS/LEADERS: Please contact alex@disastersurveyor.com for having your Disaster Surveyor account upgraded to as a "Team Admin" that can approve/decline, and manage all of your team members on the website (who have signed up with the same team code in the app).
