  • Some useful links- GIS/situational/shaking intensity

    Received this info via email:

    A few simple GIS applications put together to get some situational awareness
    in Haiti http://haiti.ushahidi.com/main


    Stuart Moffat, UofColorado Hazard Centre grad student, just
    launched a web app to let friends and family find the shaking intensity
    for addresses in Haiti affected by the earthquake. The shaking intensity
    and description may help them get an idea of damages if they aren't able
    to contact their loved ones.
    Please spread the word via email, twitter, other social apps:

    The Huffington Post had an article on the progress to date on work done by Ushahidi in Haiti.

    I followed up exploring information on the group at their web site
    http://www.ushahidi.com/
    THe work has expanded beyond locating missing persons to assisting matching needs with relief resources.
    Fascinating technology and people involved that shares a lot with the goals and methods of flutrackers.
