We’re heading next week to San Juan for the 2019 NetHope Global Summit. As one of their technology partners, we’re looking forward to showcasing how Fulcrum is being used in global response operations to events like Cyclone Idai in Mozambique and Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas.
NetHope is a consortium of 60 nonprofit organizations from around the world that uses technology to respond to humanitarian, international development, and conservation challenges. They bring expertise in a combination of things like information technology, connectivity and infrastructure, and emergency response to help local communities be better prepared and equipped to respond to crises.
On Thursday we’re hosting a workshop called Field Data Collection with Fulcrum and Mapbox in which we’ll be doing hands-on walkthroughs in building surveys for field data collection, using Fulcrum to collect data in a simulated exercise, then visualizing data for reporting and analysis with Mapbox’s Atlas mapping platform.
Donayle, Joe, and I will be in attendance to meet with organizations from all over the globe, from NetHope’s members to its network of technology partners, looking for more opportunities to bring responsive, powerful technology to bear on humanitarian projects.
