About Developer
English (USA)

When a disaster occurs it is important to gather information and to help people share that information as quickly as possible. We are preparing a project based around solutions for situation mapping, restoring communications and coordinating on-going recovery. The goal is to create tools that can be quickly customized when needed and to build a community that improves and shares these solutions around the world.

Guiding Principles
- Keep It Simple
- Aim For The Best
- Give People Freedom

Everything should be easy to build, use, maintain and customize. What technology can accomplish and what people actually require must be balanced to provide effective solutions.

Everything should solve problems with the greatest quality and reliability possible. Good tools cause minimal overhead when helping people overcome challenges.

Providing solutions that address many problems means providing flexibility. This includes using licensing that provides freedom wherever possible so that everyone can use, study, share and improve the tools.

This is the list where we make it happen.

For your reference, we host our software on Gitorious:

We host our hardware designs on SolderPad:
