Crisis Camp Haiti KC
Saturday, February 6, 2010 from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM (CST)
Kansas City, MO
On Saturday Feb. 6 Crisis Camp Haiti KC is going to bring together volunteers to collaborate on technology projects which aim to assist in Haiti's relief efforts by providing data, information, maps and technical assistance to NGOs, relief agencies and the public.
Justin Isbell (@facon12) will be heading up this event.
This event is free and open to the public. You don't have to be technical to volunteer time. Also, you may show up at anytime during the day for as long as you wish - although obviously we will get the most done with the most people hours!
Recent Projects done by Crisis Camp Haiti
1. Base layer map for Port Au Prince: This project would create a new collection of imagery and a new base map for NGOs and relief agencies. Post available imagery to share with the public for open source applications.
2. Family locator systems: Uniting efforts of interested technologists, developers and communications experts to provide technical assistance.
3 . Managing News Aggregator: Provide content channel management to coordinate data feeds
Crisis Camp will bring together domain experts, developers, and first responders around improving technology and practice for humanitarian crisis management and disaster relief.
Each and every day, people across the world can find themselves in crisis. Whether it be for a day, a month or an area of social distress, we all have a common need to connect with loved ones, access information and offer assistance to others.
CrisisCamps are hosted in a barcamp style where great minds come together to share their knowledge and expertise for social good.
