Disaster Management {CrisisMapping}

CrisisMapHaiti1

I volunteer as part of the Crisis Mappers Humanitarian Technology Network. Crisis mapping is inherently interdisciplinary, situated at the nexus of many fields, drawing from debates in disciplines as diverse as: geography, epidemiology, sociology, environmental science, political science, forestry, ecology, psychology, linguistics, robotics, communication, cultural studies, statistics, mathematics, conflict studies, art and design, computer science and disaster and emergency management. Sometimes it is difficult to engage a group of people from such tremendously different professional and personal backgrounds, with dramatically different views of the world.
