Subject Area
The American Red Cross leverages open data in many ways for long term programs and during disaster responses. Most recently during Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines thousands of volunteer mappers made millions of edits to OpenStreetMap in the affected areas of the Philippines to support humanitarians such as the Red Cross on the ground. This session will look at the mechanics of how the American Red Cross uses the great work of digital volunteers to empower its relief teams on the ground to navigate, plan, and make life changing decisions.

release data services or data as data and not for what he
sometimes people are really off some of the nastiest they should thousands agency each year to the box all the great people came to the in real for next week actually used other time
we enough basically is all out there is
out there have amasses
into than things but it is a sort of lap away in the way
maps of these web corals people spun out but there not again services through the
exposing the sound of someone with
a lot of time to sort of reverse into the air to grab your away with
it but the language of a actually open Street Dyck order named in this year this is the number of genes that this is just changed that from after the typhoon and we need that to
happen really quickly the chosen data from the bowler's
bouncing gaining were in
24 hours or really last far Xanadu
city of 50 thousand people and
had a direct-response to the
amount mapping that was done there was
able to help are guilty the

contributed for pointy knowing
added to the basement for of his regret that the 3 for use of
1 really good traces
working full time so huge
looming select will easier it but is
actually the Blue completely
amazing that we don't worry about this Celso team based every night every morning when I wake up the based
maps can also be used scant actual data far cashing in
and the need to know where the banks are
Figo find a banque in the City has point but that in no oak by the the
next casting of applicable weeks now knows the Bank
before Nafta pictures of suspended the point but it is amazing how quickly be rebels method that began has direct impact people field number building densities are so that we can to identify town cintas when there is when you look at a map of what places where the big disastrous step there is no matches in the looking Google or index paying order your chosen based this conclude like they except for the loss of my way for it to go on until the context rhetoric quickly and the board over teams are there for 3 4 weeks and then the team's coming as 4th diminutives comedians 14 in the world
but this sort of odds Guillermo successful popular madefor the team during the bookings response to see us and as based in the US I am initiative and then the some numbers atrocities areas and those numbers represented beneficiaries and we're able to get these this map based which are staff the circle rather than a goal a morning when the young afternoon at the same time as time in order to allow a vision and we're sort of tissue simple tools and the board close to get them data that they could use use in real time again this is
showing sex between paper maps and digital maps here we haven't into a tabloid with a demand updated again sort of every couple days a week with based on data that we're using to get from Point a point the and then discussing with local launches how returning to get to a certain placing about Shelton distribution tends for food for the advice of the mosquito nets and the things we really
it's hard sometimes with this sort of her proprietors yes so about there and that doesn't fit with are really like to work after not the services of the those websites Sir where they may be but they just don't which China a 0 cost we don't go somewhere in the lead and with the bill for 10 thousand hours in your to with on a go somewhere and leave them and then take the data when because they can't for the licence should really board and that we are open sauce no candidate in all things a leading we also really 1 work
are means are worst modern cars so really focus on the things that were good really work with partners close get it sorted the most everything positive thinking
