Technologies Used by Standby Task Force Volunteers The Standby Volunteer Task Force comprises a network of skilled and dedicated volunteers from the world over. We use multiple technologies to manage live mapping operations. These include Ning, Skype, email, Google Groups, Google Docs, cell phones, Ushahidi, OpenStreetMap, ArcGIS, Google Maps, Google Earth, Access, Excel, SatScan, DropBox, YouSendIt, Doodle and Wordl. Since we use so many technologies, we figured we’d simply use the title “Standby Volunteer Task Force” rather than the U-O-A-G-G-A-E-S-D-Y-D-W Standby Volunteer Task Force. When we launched the Task Force at the 2010 Crisis Mapping Conference, we offered to develop a model (i.e., processes, workflows, protocols, best practices, etc) for live crisis mapping that other communities could benefit from. In other words, our focus with the Task Force was first on people, then process and then technology.

However, I’ve already formulated some key objectives for 2010, which include closer collaboration with peers.
