I am writing to inform you about a University of Adelaide interdisciplinary research project –
Humanitarian Emergencies in a Digital World. This project seeks to understand why people all over the world participate in crisis responses, in particularly why people choose to volunteer, their experiences
of the process and their perceptions of the impact. This project aims to contribute to our understanding of the how processes such as crowdsourcing and crisis mapping help to inform the situational awareness of humanitarian aid workers during emergencies.
We are hoping that some Open Street Map Australia members would be interested in participating in this survey. A link to the survey, and some additional information about this project is available online
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
