#HurricaneHackers Compile Tools for Sandy Tracking

Posted in Resources by jpatterson

Check out and contribute to the crowdsourced project #HurricaneHackers. These real-time shared notes gather information and organize tech+social projects related to Hurricane Sandy, led by MIT’s Assistant Professor of Civic Media, Sasha Costanza-Chock.

Whether you’re reporting on the storm or just following along, this resource aggregates storm maps, data, social, APIs, news, public service announcements and more. Projects in progress include SandyTimeline, a crowdsourced, rich-media timeline of key Hurricane Sandy events, and SandyStreamsMap, a map of all available storm livestreams.

We encourage you to get involved or help by sharing this resource. Most importantly, for those of you in storm areas, stay safe!
