Crowdmap was an online tool designed by the creators of the Ushahidi platform for creating interactive maps or timelines from data collected from cell phones, news reports and the web.

Crowdmap is no longer available online, but the general functionality is available in the main Ushahidi platform.

"What can I do with Crowdmap?

  • Monitor Elections Use the power of the crowd to monitor and visualize what went right, and what went wrong, in an election.
  • Map Crisis Information Whether it's a natural disaster, epidemic or political crisis, Crowdmap was built for it.
  • Curate Local Resources Crowdsourcing isn't just for emergencies, you can use it for local knowledge and business too." (Ushahidi, Inc, 2012)
