Emergent crisis management
March 25th, 2009

An article at InSTEDD describing GeoChat explains emerging understanding of managing to a major humanitarian crisis with networks. Here is a capsule:

GeoChat is a flexible open source group communications technology that lets team members interact to maintain shared geospatial awareness of who is doing what where — over any device, on any platform, over any network. GeoChat allows you and your team to stay in touch one another in a variety of ways: over SMS, over email, and on the surface of a map in a web browser.   Whether you are sitting at a computer with a high-speed Internet connection, or on the go with your mobile phone, GeoChat let you react to events on the ground with maximum agility, forming cross-organizational virtual teams on the fly, linking field to headquarters, and keeping everyone on your team connected, in sync, and aware of who is doing what, and where.
