NetHope Global Summit

Vision. Action. Hope.

San Juan, Puerto Rico; 21 -25 October 2019

 

The NetHope Global Summit is the largest gathering of NetHope members each year, offering a unique opportunity to learn, collaborate and get inspired, working to improve the human condition through the power of technology.

IDMC's Vicente Anzellini will join a panel entitled 'Putting Facebook Disaster Maps To Work' on Thursday 24 October at 09.00.

For humanitarian responders and development agencies large-scale data from social media is one of the most important sources of information. Facebook Data for Good has made rapid advances in the ability to use the anonymized and aggregated location information of Facebook users, as well as key signals for network coverage and power access, for geographic analysis in crisis situations through their Disaster Maps data products.  

Vicente will share how Facebook's Disaster Maps can be used to track internal displacement flows, location and duration.
