Innovative tools for data coordination and collection

Technology is driving new (often inexpensive) modalities for information sharing and communication in humanitarian response. On 27 August 2014, members of the humanitarian community began the Ebola IM/GIS Skype group. This platform enabled communications across agencies and countries to share best practices and latest news in information management (IM) and geospatial information systems (GIS) during the Ebola response. The group was formed under the overall coordination of the Digital Humanitarian Network (DHN).
