Pin Point Alerts present at the United Nations


Published on

Pin Point Alerts presented at a United Nations meeting on November 16trh 2011.

The main purpose of the meeting was to share ideas on how to use crowd mapping in crisis situations. We used as a positive case study.

A simulation exercise at Samoa was also outlined and proposals were put forward to assist with the exercise. We designed to highlight how our location-based alert services could assist during an emergency situation, such as a Cyclone or as Tsunami.
