Crisis mapping and crowdsourcing – my new Everest

Imagine the power of being able to utilize real time big data from hundreds of thousands of individuals, all providing input to real time crisis maps and analytics.  Imagine being able to use this information to predict or forecast demand for goods and services and harnessing this information, before the dust settles (no pun intended), to mobilize resources before the call comes.

Developments in crowdsourcing and crisis mapping are creating these possibilities in what could be a game changer for many industries, including insurance restoration.

The recent article “Big Data and Crowdsourcing in Humanitarian Crisis Mapping” has sparked my interest in exploring this field.  Stay tuned to monitor my progress with this project!

Performance Analytics.  Your data.  Seen like never before.
