This cloud-based map-making tool was designed with relief agencies in mind so they can better organize resources in remote areas. Based in California, startup RippleNami aims to make information more accessible by visualizing data points in the form of a map.
The collaborative mapping platform works on any device (including smartphones) and helps users securely store a wide variety of information including weather forecasts, travel information, social media newsfeeds and emergencies. In addition to being easy to implement, intuitive and relevant for NGOs, the map-making tool also has applications for business with its full encryption and cost-effectiveness. The new company also emphasizes its suitability for veteran services as you can efficiently "streamline coordination efforts with up to the second information."
