    • Mapping a Nairobi slum.
  • MapStory : MapStory
    • MapStory, as a compliment to Wikipedia, is a new dimension to the global data commons that empowers a global user community to organize all knowledge about the world spatially and temporally. Perhaps more important, MapStory is an infrastructure for enabling “MapStorytelling” as a means of communicating important issues to a global audience. The goal is to enable any student, teacher or practitioner on Earth to tap the power of this new mode of conveying one’s stories, arrayed across geography and as they unfold over time.
  • Verifying Crowdsourced Data: Case Studies
    • Paper by Patrick Meier on how to verify crowdsourced social media data in crisis situation.
