Ten Tools

There are many tools that are used to collect data, from many sources. One tool that I took an great interest in was Ushahidi. This is an amazing website because it collects data via cell phones to map out where events are happening. This is great because most people have a cell phone. I really liked how Syria Tracker, a humanitarian website, utilized Ushahidi to show reports of different issues occurring to Syrians i.e. the spread of disease, chemical poisoning, and missing/detained individuals. This source gives the ability to get the real story from those who have a cell phone.
