One Year Later - Haiti Aid Map Shows Latest Progress and Continued Need
A new online Haiti mapping project was launched today by InterAction, the largest alliance of U.S.-based international NGOs.
The interactive Haiti Aid Map was developed in partnership with InterAction, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Business Civic Leadership Center (BCLC) and sponsored by FedEx.http://haiti.ngoaidmap.org. GeoIQ, FortiusOne’s leading location analytics software, enables the underlying data processing and analysis for the Haiti Aid Map. See it here.
This online platform gives simple, fast and accurate information about who is doing what, where. It is a valuable tool for NGOs working in Haiti and helps them to identify the areas of greatest need and better allocate resources. The Haiti Aid Map also provides transparency into relief and recovery efforts and enables donors and members of the public to track progress following the January 12, 2010 earthquake.
InterAction partnered with FortiusOne in 2009 to leverage GeoIQ across their 193 member organizations to better demonstrate NGO impact and accountability across the globe.
“With FortiusOne's GeoIQ platform we are bringing greater visibility into NGO activity and impact across the globe," said Samuel Worthington, President and CEO of InterAction. "We are working to promote a bold agenda to focus U.S. development and humanitarian assistance on improving the conditions of the world’s poor and most vulnerable. FortiusOne is enabling us to map the contributions and impact of our community worldwide in order to better coordinate organizations in the field, improve aid allocation, and facilitate greater communication and awareness."
