Feb 04, 2010 by Joseph Reeves

A great number of people, myself included, have been doing what we can to help relief work in Haiti. This is now, rather wonderfully, being picked up in the proper press:

NewScientist 27 January 2010: How crowdsourcing is helping in Haiti

The Guardian 4 February 2010: Meet the Wikipedia of the mapping world

See also Mikel Maron's blog entry, this one by Harry Wood and these video's of Haiti mapping by Eric Marsden: Port au Prince, Haiti.
