Mobile app makes urban mapping fast, easy and cheap

The process of completing street-level surveys and inspections on crucial infrastructure is time-consuming, expensive and error prone. It is typically a task that requires trained personnel to travel into the field, observe and report on traffic lights, stop signs, road conditions and more. But advances in open data, mobile image technology and data analysis have made it possible for cities to drastically improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of their efforts to manage and maintain public assets. One solution comes in the form of an easy-to-use mobile app bringing all these innovations together. Harnessing the power of spatial analytics and 3D... (read more)

Mapping Ebola

In perhaps its most frightening deployment yet, MapAction has once again demonstrated how its volunteers with standard geographic information technology can make a difference. Working with the UN or other NGOs the volunteers have worked since last September in Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Mali and Ghana, reports Nigel Woof, to support the international response to Ebola. The Ebola outbreak in a village called Meliandou in Southeast Guinea in December 2013 was not, of itself, a new phenomenon in Africa. The disease had first been described 37 years earlier, deep in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo. Likewise, the... (read more)
