About the Project

Description

Following the groundbreaking work of Vinay Gupta (Twitter: @leashless) on http://resiliencemaps.org/ we are working on crowdsourcing information about critical infrastructure capacity. The first iteration of that is as important as it is simple: to crowdsource information about the capacity and utilization of hospital infrastructure in areas affected by Covid19, starting with New York City. This would aims to achieve two important goals: to inform the population about their risks as well as how to get help, and put pressure on local and national governments to improve infrastructure resilience. Starting with Covid19 epidemic, we see an opportunity to take this work much further, and aim at global mitigation of climate risks, and global disaster scenario analysis.
