Paul commented on Mapping slums

Good idea Andre,

By partnering with the Google Maps Trekker team you could implement this idea in a low cost manner. They have a created a backpack that functions like their StreetView cars that they loan out to areas in need of coverage. It automatically integrates GPS with the pictures, and leverages the Google Maps online platform so government officials, NGO, and residents can use the result.

The best part, you can apply now and start building resilience:

Love your idea: scalable, sensitive and adaptable to any place with women and children in need.

Good luck with expansion and implementation.

Great Idea. I like how it gives armchair activists a way to get involved.
