Crowdsourcing public accountability


Open source computer software built on the concept of crowdsourcing for social activism 
and public accountability, serving as an initial model for what has been coined as ‘activist mapping’

  • the combination of social activism
  • citizen journalism
  • geospatial information

Ushahidi offers products that enable local observers to submit reports using their mobile phones or the internet, while simultaneously creating a temporal and geospatial archive of events
