Deployment(s) of the Week
This week, we recognise three outstanding projects as deployments of the week. SardSOS : Emergenza Meteo Sardegna 2013 is a deployment set up to track effects of the deadly Cyclone Cleopatra and subsequent floods and help with emergency efforts.
We are in the business of big data. Our products transform a deluge of information across the world and make them meaningful to communities around the world. We design systems and tools that curate information that we hope to make impactful to people in terms of crisis.
We have seen some incredible use cases of Ushahidi over the past five years, the majority of which we could never have dreamed of. Erik posted a blog post about how we choose to go wide instead of just deep by creating a tool that was purposefully a platform.
