risis mapping is a new field of study that uses modern technology to analyze the combination of time, location and content. According to a prominent blog about crisis mapping entitled iRevolution by Patrick Meier, it is where “[s]cholars, practitioners, and communities alike are working together to create, analyze, visualize and use real-time data for humanitarian response and post-conflict reconstruction and development (Meier, “Proposing” 2009).” This combination of theory and application for social benefit gives crisis mapping the opportunity to create substantial change when addressing crises.

    Crisis Mapping Crisis Mapping Presentation Transcript

    • Crisis Mapping
      By Tom Weinandy, Class of 2011
      Conflict & Disaster Response in the Digital Age
    • What It Is
      According to a prominent blog about crisis mapping entitled iRevolution by Patrick Meier, it is where “scholars, practitioners,and communities alike are working together to create, analyze, visualize and use real-time data for humanitarian response and post-conflict reconstruction and development.”

    • Hypothesis
      The decentralized structure of crisis mapping and its foundation in a community approach to information gathering and application allow it to rapidly change to the current needs of the people that utilize it.  As technologies, methods, and data improve, crisis mapping will continue to modify how it is used in study and practice to understand past conflicts, present crises and future prevention.
    • Neocartography
      Neocartography allows anyone and everyone contribute to map making.

    • Open Street Map Edits After the 2010 Earthquake in Haiti
    • Origins at John Carroll University
      The International Network of Crisis Mappers (CM*Net) was born from the 2009 conference at JCU. Three months later the network responded to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
    • Volunteer Network
      The success of Crisis Mapping has come from its decentralized structure. This was shown in Haiti when the largest response to the disaster came from volunteers spread out across the world.

    • Future Response
      “The Standby Task Force (SBTF) rises to the challenge of turning the adhoc groups of tech-savvy mapping volunteers that emerge around crises into a flexible, trained and prepared network ready to deploy.”
