Crowdsourcing Crisis Information

Ushahidi (Swahili for "testimony" or "witness") is a crowdsourcing application created in the aftermath of Kenya's disputed 2007 presidential election that enables local observers to submit reports using their mobile phones or the internet, while simultaneously creating a temporal and geospatial archive of events.
