Beacon is a web-based application that allows disaster survivors to locate the nearest sources of relief. These can be food, shelter, clean water, or other necessities.

Relief organizations will be able to efficiently utilize the application to coordinate volunteer movements, allocate relief supplies, and ensure the swift recovery of the community. 

Community members looking to get involved with the recovery process can easily access volunteer sign-ups, and others can see where relief supplies are most needed. 

The application will be based off of the latest geographic information systems, combining map functions, communications ability, and social media integration.
