Project update report

What we have done in the past month.

  • We shifted our hosting provider from Amazon to rackspace. The amazon hosting was costing us $96 per month. The site hosting is now provided by Cogilent Solutions (BrightSpyre.com) on a pro bono basis.
  • Our first research paper on pakreport is also moving and we hope to submit final version of the paper by July 20th.

Moving on...

Here are our further goals for next quarter

  • Move the existing to pakreport.org/floods to archive the existing data. And, make pakreport.org for mapping the current big issues in Pakistan. We may choose from Road accidents, corruption incidents or map the unrest in Karachi.
  • As stated in our last reports that we have done and collected huge information that is helpful for mapping disasters. As, pakreport.org is first of such implementations in Pakistan, the knowledge base about mapping ( exact longitude and latitude ) information and reaching out to people in disaster is useful. However, much of this information is still in excel sheets and shared in Google groups. We are building a software interface for people to access this data easily. Also, we want to improve the data by providing option to community to update mapping information of Pakistan.
