Why Crisis Mapping?

In a recent post from the Tufts Experimental College’s Crisis Mapping blog, a German exchange student studying here at Tufts talks about her experience taking a class on crisis mapping. She writes:

During a crisis one often feels helpless in the face of devastation and misery, especially because being far away from the event there is nothing one can do to help, except for sending money. I think crisis mapping is (from what I’ve heard so far) a great tool to make it easier for those in the afflicted areas to help. Also, it seems like a great way to use technology to improve crisis response.
