CrowdGlobe is an initiative highlighting deployments and research in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) field. This project looks at how crowdsourcing methodologies applied to mapping have been strategically used for new media, emergency response, political engagement and civic programs. The aim of Crowdglobe is to provide an open research platform that can be used to inform the future use of crowdsourcing mapping methodologies.
Our First Report
When the CrowdGlobe research project was launched in October 2011, a total of 12,795 Crowdmaps had been created in over 100 countries. The aim of this first report is to develop a better understanding of how Crowdmap (and Ushahidi) have been used and to analyze the data they have generated over recent years.
