VGI and crisis mapping in an emergency situation. Comparison of four case studies: Haiti, Kibera, Kathmandu, Centre Italy

Lucia Saganeiti, Federico Amato, Beniamino Murgante, Gabriele Nolè
2017 GEOmedia  
Another completely open source platform that has revolutionized the world of geographic information and how to make reports is Ushaidi that through interactive maps represents testimonies, reports, diaries  ...  These are supported by platforms such as OpenStreetMap that have been shown in many emergency cases and not, a valid source of data, such detailed to be used for rescue operations.  ...  The OSM community starts working already before the events. In 2009, the score increases to 5 as after the earthquake striking Abruzzo, the OSM community worked to update the maps of L'Aquila.  ...

Volunteered Geographic Information and Crowdsourcing Disaster Relief: A Case Study of the Haitian Earthquake

Matthew Zook, Mark Graham, Taylor Shelton, Sean Gorman
2010 Social Science Research Network  
This paper outlines the ways in which information technologies (ITs) were used in the Haiti relief effort, especially with respect to web-based mapping services.  ...  While not without problems, this effort nevertheless represents a remarkable example of the power and crowdsourced online mapping and the potential for new avenues of interaction between physically distant  ...  Due to the dearth of available high-quality geo-information, Google, DigitalGlobe, and GeoEye worked together to get high-quality satellite imagery of post-earthquake Haiti collected, processed, and made  ...

Putting 200 Million People "on the Map": Evolving Methods and Tools [chapter]

Emily Eros
2018 Technologies for Development  
A lack of maps and geographic data can prevent lifesaving resources from meeting those in need. For this reason, mapping is a core component of the Red Cross' disaster response efforts.  ...  Popular services such as Google Maps lack information for much of the Global South; many communities exist as simply a place name and perhaps a collection of roads.  ...  At the time of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, for example, only rudimentary maps were widely available.  ...

A Review Of The Capacity For Openstreetmap Software In Humanitarian Disaster Response: A Case Study Investigating The Humanitarian Openstreetmap Team Response To The 2015 Nepalese Earthquake

Courtney Rieger
2017 Zenodo  
The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) is one such sensor network working to empower citizens to collaboratively produce a global picture from free geographic information.  ...  The success of such open source software is extended by the development of freely used open databases for the user community. Participating citizens do not require a high level of skill.  ...  Post-quake Lessons from Haiti and Nepal The capacity of the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team was truly challenged during the Haiti earthquake of 2010, the event in which many of the difficulties of crisis  ...

Collaborative damage mapping for emergency response: the role of Cognitive Systems Engineering

N. Kerle, R. R. Hoffman
2013 Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences  
We also identify problematic assumptions about the capabilities of the volunteers, principally related to the ability to perform the mapping, and to understand mapping instructions unambiguously.  ...  The volunteers, the mapping organizers, and the map users all perform complex cognitive tasks, yet little is known about the actual information needs of the users.  ...  The authors thank the Earthquake Engineering Field Investigation Team (EEFIT) and Cambridge Architectural Research Ltd. for permission to reproduce field photographs, and Pictometry International Corp.  ...
