  • Monitor 1 -3 events each day, every day.
    Our volunteer team has been actively monitoring daily since 2010.
    We have live-monitored more events in social media than any other org on earth.
    Chair for the US.A Department of Homeland Security Virtual Social Media Working Group
    We test innovative new tools for data mining emerging information
  • The weight of that information can be heavy at times – finding the signal in the noise is important and can save lives
    In 2012 Humanity Road volunteers contributed over 20k hours of service monitoring disaster
    Text messages that are received by family and loved ones empower those outside the event to be a participant
  • You can take an active part during disaster! After Hurricane Sandy, Over 48k people were helped in this location through
    The power of facebook, social media messages and both digital and onsite support Evert from Disaster Tech Lab
    Spoke about this earlier in the day.
  • V&TC’s – innovation, experienced, rapid deployment, technological and skilled support – its a special collaborative team
    That leverages a digital intellectual pool to respond rapidly
  • So what can they do?
  • Early mapping and reporting can provide rapid population, damage or aid assessments.
    It can help tackle the sea of information when the local community team needs it
  • Within 48 hours of activating – the Libya crisismap was live and providing valuable content on population migration and spontaneous IDP camp locations in the countries bordering Libya.
    Within 24 hours UN OCHA assessment team published their social media map. The data from this map was exported into other solution maps creating a single source location for data at the onset of an event.
    Not only speed but size can affect a response agency’s ability to perform their role effectively. On July 2, 2013 over 4,200 villages reportedly had been impacted in the Uttarakhand district of India, the Seeds and Sphere team needed information on who was responding to their disaster. Work already in progress was tapped and within 72 hours, a living digital 3W report of over 100 agencies was delivered.
  • Challenge: Review social media reports for UN OCHA Assessment Team for social media map. Broad damage from Bopha – Need it in 12 hours.
    This created a single solution: SBTF and Humanity Road split the task by impact days, reviewed, compiled and presented data.
    OCHA Published the map Google pulled the feed for their Google Crisis Map
  • Digital Humanitarian Network is innovation in Humanitarian response.
    Through collaborative engagement we improve data accuracy, veracity and reduce redundant work teams
    Potentially reducing the time it takes for disaster assessment and
    allowing us to move more quickly from disaster response into disaster recovery.
