The Tulsa Area Flood Event 2019

Matt Parsell

City of Tulsa GIS Coordinator

In response to the Tulsa area flood event we (COT GIS Services) were immediately faced with a number of challenges. Who needed GIS support? What kind of support would they require? Was there more that we could be doing to help support the efforts of those responding to the event? We had to quickly and calmly prioritize the above questions in order to provide the best GIS support possible. We met with Tulsa Police and Fire personnel and listened to their concerns and needs, their initial concern was the creation of maps for the area's most likely to be affected by the rising flood waters. This was followed by analysis of population data in order to generate estimated counts of how many citizens within the Tulsa corporate limits might be affected by the rising flood waters. Lastly, with the help of an Esri disaster recovery technician we were able to provide web based solutions and applications that could be deployed to further support personnel in the field and the Emergency Operation Center.

GIS, Modeling and Online Mapping for the May 2019 Floods   

In an emergency, what do you map?  Are there different possible maps of the same data?  Who sees which map?  How are the maps used?  All these questions were confronted by our company and our partners during the May 2019 floods.  Issues with data currency, consistency, and quality were encountered.  Different audiences required different map formats (print or online).  Different people could look at the same map and reach different conclusions, or see different information in the same data – sometimes rightly, sometimes wrongly.  What resources does it take to respond to an emergency such as what we faced?  This presentation will cover these issues in brief and our lessons learned, to help safeguard today and build a stronger tomorrow.
