FEMA App Adds Crowdsourcing for Disaster Relief
FEMA released an update to its app with a new feature called “Disaster Reporter”. It allows users to submit disaster-related images to be publicly hosted on the FEMA website. You can add short text descriptions to photos, which then go through a basic approval process to ensure images are relevant and do not disclose any user’s personal information. The images are then posted on a map for public viewing.
