NetHope provides information communications infrastructure support to humanitarian groups in disaster zones. It distills large amounts of data to maximize impact when it matters most.
Tableau Foundation has partnered with NetHope to help save lives and alleviate suffering during humanity’s most trying moments, including the aftermath of Cyclone Pam in Vanuatu and the earthquake in Nepal.
When disaster strikes, there’s a “data scramble” to find relevant information, according to Gisli Olafsson, NetHope’s emergency response director.
To optimize aid efforts, Tableau Foundation provided a grant of software, training, and financial support, and Tableau Visionaries helped create interactive dashboards to enable fast information sharing.
