Data-sharing website Humanitarian Data Exchange could be a life saver during a crisis. The platform enables non-governmental organizations to collate, standardize and comprehend data relating to disasters like the Nepal earthquake or the Philippines typhoon. Information like maps, population density and climate details are vital in the development of rescue missions. However, this kind of data is often organized in unusable formats, requiring the information to be retyped and processed, which only wastes time.
The Humanitarian Data Exchange (or HDX) is a platform created by the UN and global design firm Frog. It coordinates relevant information on one website, allowing disaster relief organizations to better collaborate. This will not only save time, but resources too. The user-friendly and intuitive interface makes collecting data and analyzing it easy as well.
