My talk begins at 29:49 after Nigel Snoad’s introduction.
In November I was a speaker at the 2014 International Conference of Crisis Mappers in New York. It was almost a year after Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, where at the time I was en route to the 2013 conference in Nairobi. So much has happened in the last year, I’ve learned a lot and met some amazing and supportive folks.
The International Network of Crisis Mappers (Crisis Mappers Net) is the largest and most active 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.
