Overview

Damage Assessment is a configuration of Survey123 for ArcGIS and Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS that can be used by field inspectors to conduct initial damage assessments immediately following an incident or natural disaster. It can also be used to monitor field assessments and determine whether damage costs exceed State or Federal declaration thresholds.

The initial damage assessment or windshield survey can precede the Joint Preliminary Damage Assessment (PDA) which is conducted with Federal, State and Local officials after a disaster declaration has been made. Damage Assessment is designed to collect and monitor damage to local structures including residential, commercial buildings and public facilities.
