Their platform is there for “everyday” people to let the world know what is happening in their area during a crisis, emergency or other situation. It allows anyone to submit information through text messaging using a mobile phone, email or web form. Bringing awareness, linking those in need to those who can assist, and providing the framework for better visualisation of information graphically.
