Video: How USAID Crowdsources to Help Save the World

Just about any kind of development work around the world stands to benefit from all kinds of mapping activities, but it's not always easily done in the developing world. In this video, USAID's Shadrock Roberts speaks about one example of how crowdsourcing was leveraged for a mapping component of an international development project. 

Listen closely and you'll notice that the strengths Roberts outlines of using crowdsourcing for this one-day project are the same benefits that we talk about when we discuss working with crowds in many other contexts and at far greater scale.
