Many thanks to the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI), for supporting the network, conference series & website, the Department of Political Science @ John Carroll for co-organizing ICCM 2009 & 2010 & the Swiss Confederation, ICT4Peace Foundation, & the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre for support for ICCM 2011, & The World Bank-GFDRR Labs, The World Bank Institute, & George Washington University's School of Media & Public Affairs for hosting ICCM 2012!
Crisis Mappers leverage mobile & web-based applications, participatory maps & crowdsourced event data, aerial & satellite imagery, geospatial platforms, advanced visualization, live simulation, and computational & statistical models to power effective early warning for rapid response to complex humanitarian emergencies. As information scientists we also attempt to extract meaning from mass volumes of real-time data exhaust.
The International Network of Crisis Mappers is the largest and most active international community of experts, practitioners, policymakers, technologists, researchers, journalists, scholars, hackers and skilled volunteers engaged at the intersection between humanitarian crises, technology, crowd-sourcing, and crisis mapping. The Crisis Mappers Network was launched by 100 Crisis Mappers at the first International Conference on Crisis Mapping (ICCM) in 2009. As the world's premier humanitarian technology forum, we now engage 5,000+ members in over 160 countries, who are affiliated with over 2,000 different institutions, including over 400 universities, 50 United Nations agencies & projects, dozens of leading technology companies, several volunteer and technical community networks, and disaster response and recovery organizations. Dr. Patrick Meier & Dr. Jen Ziemke are the Network's Co-Founders & Co-Curators.
Join our Google Group to participate in the latest discussions, ask questions, share & brainstorm, add yourself to the member map, learn what Crisis Mapping is all about, and view our list of member affiliations to learn about who we are.

New! Bid to host ICCM 2014 here!
5th Annual INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
of CRISIS MAPPERS
18-22 November 2013
Conference Venue: United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON)
Many thanks to our 2013 Conference Organizers!:
The International Conference of Crisis Mappers (ICCM) is the leading humanitarian technology event of the year, bringing together the most important humanitarian, human rights, development and media organizations with the world's best technology companies, software developers and academics. Last year's conference was hosted by the World Bank in Washington, DC and drew well over 400 active participants to define the cutting edge of humanitarian technology.
This conference series has catalyzed the exchange of information and best practices in the emerging field of Crisis Mapping. The annual event has spawned new partnerships and projects that are advancing the fields of Crisis Mapping and Humanitarian Technology. ICCM has also been fortunate to have had considerable media coverage including but certainly not limited to the New York Times, Washington Post, The Economist, UK Guardian, CNN, TED Blog, CBC News, Reuters, ReadWriteWeb, Fast Company, NPR, Voice of America, UN Chronicle and Harvard Business Review.
The theme for ICCM 2013 is “Humanitarian Technology Innovation In and Out of Africa.” It will highlight humanitarian innovation and technology in and outside Africa to cross-fertilize lessons learned and best practices. Core themes of ICCM 2013 thus include national and regional crisis mapping & early warning projects; grassroots, people-centered mapping and development; communicating with disaster affected communities; crowdsourcing crisis information; big data analytics; social computing and information forensics; and next-generation humanitarian technology solutions.
Each annual ICCM conference event is organized in partnership with a local institution. This year we are happy to work with Spatial Collective in Nairobi. Spatial Collective’s mission is to be a leading provider of local content, data collection and visualization services and innovative tools for social change and collective action.
