Ushahidi – crowdsourcing information in a a crisis

Ushahidi is a fascinating and wonderful project for reporting crisis information.

Welcome to Ushahidi, which means “testimony” in Swahili, where we are building a platform that crowdsources crisis information. Allowing anyone to submit crisis information through text messaging using a mobile phone, email or web form.

An open source platform for gathering information about events and incidents during a crisis. People can report an event via phone, email or web form. Information is displayed on interactive maps and timelines.
