UN-SPIDER: Space-based information for Crowdsource Mapping
Distributed Knowledge

A UN initiative to boost emergency response by crowdsourced mapping and space technology

How to ensure that space-based information for crowdsource mapping benefits the emergency response community and disaster risk reduction?

This is the key question that specialists around the world will attempt to answer during the Expert Meeting being held in Geneva, this November, which is being held to coincide with the International Conference on Crisis Mapping.

The Expert Meeting is a fundamental part of the programme that is being organized by the United Nations Platform for Space-based Information for Disaster Management and Emergency Response (SPÍDER). The SPIDER program was established by the United Nations General Assembly with the mandate of ensuring that all countries, international and regional organizations, have access to space-based information, and to ensure they develop the capacity to use all types of space-based information to support the full, disaster management cycle. This includes the need to ensure that space-based information supports the crowdsource mapping efforts for the benefit of the disaster community.

The meeting will focus on exploring the different ways that the space technology community can collect, organize and provide greater access to its information and how it can better coordinate the communities through which it crowdsources information.

Distributed Knowledge, Open Innovation

For those that think that crowdsourcing is about logo design competitions the debate continues about whether crowdsourcing is in fact just a fad – an exploitation of underpaid workers that will fade quickly once the perception of novelty is gone. There are others however, that have figured that there is more to crowdsourcing and that it has the potential to stir things up. So why is this and what are we talking about? I recently met with Dwayne Spradlin, President and CEO of InnoCentive who shared his strategic vision for the company.

Crowdsourcing the Common Cold
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

With flu season in full swing many parts of the world, the folks at Sickweather hit on just the right time to launch their new website, which uses the crowdsourcing model to track the dreaded flu infection. The Sickweather team hopes that users will use this new software as a way to avoid catching flu this winter. We took a look at this new website to see what it’s all about.

Sickweather LLC, based in Baltimore, was co-founded and launched by three guys who grew up together in that area. They built the website as a way of getting a “perspective on when sickness bubbles up, where it travels and how it affects our lives.”

An Expert Perspective on Open Innovation
Open Innovation

Over the past decade, Open Innovation has emerged as a leading business trend that has transformed the way enterprises approach all aspects of product development, from R&D through marketing and branding and even to post-sales support. By “opening the doors” to new ideas generated by others outside their own walls (including in many cases their customers!), companies have found new ways to leverage external knowledge to build better products.
