Outside Innovation: Crowd-Sourcing Safety in War Zones

Outside Innovation: Crowd-Sourcing Safety in War Zones:

In this article Patty Seybold shares two apps developed to address safety needs in war zones.

Developed by people experiencing war zone conditions in Beirut, ma2too3a (Android) crowd sources observations into a mobile app

This application allows you to know where tire burning, protests, or armed combat is happening at any time! It even shows you a traffic jam as it happens! Any user can update all others instantly about such an event, including the exact time and location.

Whenever an event is put to an end, a red rose will appear :)

Way to Safety allows “users to record gunfire and send it to the site, which will identify the weapon from a sound database and triangulate recordings to pinpoint the exact location and type of fighting.”
