Drafting a whitepaper which amounts to "quit scraping our data for situational awareness during an extreme event; just tell us how to tell you what we need." I wonder if anyone will read it.
@Willow have you looked into Open311?
I'm currently helping evaluate whether it is a good standard for reporting things back into government.
Currently mostly used for "help, there's a potholes just here" - but could easily be expanded for crisis stuff.
I've also done some work with Ushahidi - that's excellent for getting reports back from people in the field.
@Willow very interesting. That URL 404s for me.
I'm working for the UK Government looking at this. We're having an open discussion at https://github.com/alphagov/tech-and-data-standards/issues/39
Would love your point of view.
