Extract data from photos coming out of disaster situations to assist responders.
As with OpenStreetMap and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, you can participate in crisis response without leaving your home or opening your wallet. Geotag-X harvests the power of photos taken during disaster situations to become a useful tool for first responders. The project aims to glean information from these photos, and they need your help to extract meaningful, relevant and structured data. The number of photos that come out of these situations is incredible and computers just aren’t as good as humans at looking for useful information (that’s something the researchers of EyesOnALZ and activists of Public Lab all agree on!). Geotag-X invites citizen scientists to answer questions about the disaster photos which they then analyze and communicate to first responders, helping them be more efficient at saving lives. Who said it was hard being a humanitarian?
