Huge thanks to TechChange for setting this up! So glad that all the volunteers have a chance to be part of the project from start to finish! Cheers.
I loved volunteering on this project. Incredibly well coordinated.
This project was an AWESOME experience, to be part of a ground breaking event, the collaboration between Gov. and grassroots org. #USAIDcrowd #info4 #SBTF #crisismappers
Can you work on raising volume? Especially on Shadrock?
Did you do any M&E on participants and what they got out of the process, and their input on improving the experience.
War and Peace
What other applications would be possile for crowdsourcing, other than geomapping? Put otherwise, for what other types of data could crowdsourcing be used (or has been used)?
Considering all that you had to do to prepare and manage this initiative, did you ever do some sort of analysis of the time/resources spent on crowdsourcing versus what you would have spent either cleaning the data yourselves or contracting it out?
Interesting dilemma with problems of giving out admin1 data
Do you think USAID has a role to play in helping our partners, projects, and grantees connect with crowdsourcing resources and approaches? Any thoughts on what this would look like?
80 to 90% as good data standard.
you spent $0, but how much staff time? This will decline over time, but it would be nice to know how much effort it took.
As someone tweeted, it would be helpful to somehow get a copy of the PPT.
Hi Katharine, there should be an embedded slideshare of the PPT and a download link on the page below the live feed. You may need to refresh the page to see it. Leave a reply if you can’t find it.
Here’s the link to the slideshare just in case: http://www.slideshare.net/techchange/wilson-usaid-crwdsrcgeocoding?ref=http://www.slideshare.net/slideshow/embed_code/13484769
@ Katherine – There is a link just below the slideshow window that is called “Download the PowerPoint Presentation” Hope this helps.
Where is the map? They discussed it so quickly that i could not follow.

Was the presentation recorded? if so will it be available? (I’m a volunteer, that missed the first half) thanks
Excited to take lessons learned from #USAIDCrowd
