StEER (Structural Extreme Events Reconnaissance) is a crowd-sourced network of public and private individuals who go into areas following disasters and track damage caused by the event to structures and infrastructure. This information is available to everyone to view and interact with the researchers who use this data to improve structural building code recommendations.
