Visualizing the response
Finding the right map in a moment
For years, the struggle to find reliable, up-to-date maps and data sets in the moments after a disaster struck made decisionmaking hard for humanitarian responders.
In 2016, NetHope staff collaborated with Tableau Service Corps volunteer Nicco Cirone to create a resource for first responders after the Ecuador earthquake. In just 36 hours, they had created the sort of single source of truth that agencies had been seeking for years.
This viz was then replicated for a series of other crises, setting a standard for information sharing in an emergency.
