Lauri Dafner, a solutions engineer at Esri's Philadelphia regional office joined a group of residents to plan this year's Step Trek, fundraiser that tours the ciites steps. She's working with the South Side Slopes Neighborhood Association to create "story map," which the local paper calls "a combination of mapping, with contextural information, photos and video" accessible by smarhones for the event in October.
But that's not all Esri is doing with regard to steps; it's also involved in the Pittsburgh Steps Project. Mike Homa, the city's manager of Geographic Information Systems, shared that Esri is creating a map of all the city's steps. It's expected before late summer.
Esri's contributions are pro bono.
