UN-SPIDER Newsletter 2/12: Crowdsource Mapping

Issue Date: 

Tue, 02/10/2012
English

Crowdsource Mapping aims at an improved disaster management: The idea is to collect data from as many on-site sources as possible and translate that real-time data into maps. Being aware of the surrounding and the infrastructure, locals can render accurate geo-referenced information or comment on existing data and thereby help disaster managers expand the information they need for emergency operations.
