Crisis Camp Haiti NYC will take place January 30 & 31, 2010 joining together with technology volunteers at Crisis Camps in three countries and 10 cities to provide local opportunities for citizens to assist in crisis mapping, data management, and RSS feed aggregation. In addition, people with specialized skills such as translation, computer programing and literacy advocates are encouraged to participate.

Crisis Camp is a open, collaborative event held in “barcamp” style with http://www.crisiscommons.org/ to provide local and international responders, Haitian community leaders and non-governmental organizations an opportunity to engage with operations on the ground in Haiti.

Tools and resources created by Crisis Camp volunteers can enhance responders' decision-making capability, transparency and collaboration.  This event  open to the public. You don't have to be technical to volunteer time.  We request that you bring a laptop, your creativity and a power strip with you (to share with others).   

The first series of CrisisCamps for Haiti on January 16th, volunteers in four cities launched “We Need, We Have,” a repository of specific technology needs of local Haitians' response. Volunteers contributed to rich open source maps that track  nonprofit organizations on the ground in Haiti for more efficient coordination and resource distribution, and built open source applications that enable people on the ground to report vital information such as the location of a hospital or a missing person. See all of the applications and projects underway at www.CrisisCommons.org
