Crisis Mapping Conference

Posted by – August 3, 2012

The International Network of Crisis Mappers (Crisismappers.net), founded by Patrick Meyer and Jen Ziemke, is a volunteer technical community leveraging mobile & web-based applications, participatory maps & crowdsourced event data, aerial & satellite imagery, geospatial platforms, advanced visualization, live simulation, and computational & statistical models to assist response to complex humanitarian emergencies. Crisismappers.net will be hosting the 4th International Conference of Crisis Mappers (ICCM) October 11-14, 2012 in Washington, DC. The draft agenda outlines what appears to be a useful and interesting collection of training sessions, presentations, and crisis response simulations. Volunteer Technical Communities are an emerging force in disaster response, and worth reading into for disaster junkies and geospatial professionals alike.
