About us is an applied research project led by the SMART Infrastructure Facility, in collaboration with BPBD DKI Jakarta and Twitter Inc. harnesses the power of social media to gather, sort, and display information about flooding for Jakarta residents in real time.

The platform runs on the open source software known as CogniCity. This GeoSocial Intelligence framework allows data to be collected and disseminated by community members through their location-enabled mobile devices to map information about flooding and water infrastructure in real-time.
