The Crisis Mappers Network

The International Network of Crisis Mappers (Crisis Mappers Net) is an international community of experts, practitioners, policymakers, technologists, researchers, journalists, scholars, hackers and skilled volunteers engaged at the intersection of humanitarian crises, new technology, crowd-sourcing, and crisis mapping. The Crisis Mappers Network was launched at the first International Conference on Crisis Mapping (ICCM) in 2009. We engage 8,700+ members in over 160 countries, who are affiliated with over 3,000 different institutions, including  more than 400 universities, 50 United Nations agencies & projects, first responders operating in both the civilian and military space, dozens of leading technology companies, several volunteer & technical community networks and global, national, and local humanitarian and disaster response and recovery organizations.

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.

Crisis Mappers Net is not an organization or institution, and deliberately so. All of us connected here have very different goals, aims, strengths, interests, and backgrounds. As a network, we offer a neutral space for conversation and information sharing.  As volunteer administrators, we work to support the annual conference, host webinars on topics of interest, & manage the website & google group to facilitate collaboration. Thus, it is the important work of the members themselves that makes this group what it is.

We invite you to 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. Pursuing other avenues for involvement? Visit our friends at the Standby Task Force & the Digital Humanitarian Network.
