Crowdmap is designed and built by the people behind Ushahidi, a platform that was originally built to crowdsource crisis information. As the platform has evolved, so have its uses. Crowdmap allows you to set up your own deployment of Ushahidi without having to install it on your own web server, and it is free.
With Crowdmap you can collect information from cell phones, news and the web, aggregate that information into a single platform and visualize it on a map and timeline.
Nothing to Install
Your site is hosted on our servers, so you have no installation to worry about. Instead, just choose a name and start customizing your site.
One of the most powerful ways to visualize information is via a map. Choose a location and start plotting reports, information and other data right away.
Track your reports on the map and over time. You can filter your data by time and then see when things happened and where, as it’s also tied to the map.
“Real Time” Data Tracking
The admin area of Crowdmap has analytical tools for you to make sense of your incoming data in real-time.
