Why do we choose to do it

Many government open-data provides geo-located info useful for disaster relief: real time fire hazard, tide and others. We see that these data can be integrated with mobile phones and other personal devices which has been proven to save lifes.

Project Naya integrate these two source of information to make disater relief efforts.

Who uses it and what does it do for them.

To the disaster relief efforts:

  • It overlays information from both government open data (e.g. fire hazard) and user's feedback into the map to provide an overview of the disaster, giving an indication where are the ones who are in need of immediate help.
  • It reports the population distribution by user's mobile phone GPS locator, to help allocate relief resources.
  • It allows professionals to message (by SMS) people by geo-location: messages like evacuation instructions, nearby service centres and warnings

To the people in need:

  • You can report your location and status and ask for help.
  • Your loved ones are kept in the database. Their status is fed back to you in real time, including their location (if they responds).

In the future, we envision it to be a information system used by the people, the service centres, the paramedics and anyone participating disaster relief, and be a trusted source of information for everyone.
