Our White Paper — PetaJakarta.org: Assessing the Role of Social Media for Civic Co-Management During Monsoon Flooding in Jakarta, Indonesia — is now online.
PetaJakarta.org/banjir is an open source, community-led platform to collect and disseminate information about flooding and critical water infrastructure in Jakarta.
petajakarta.org is an applied research project led by the SMART Infrastructure Facility, in collaboration with BPBD DKI Jakarta and Twitter Inc. PetaJakarta.org 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.
To read more about the project background, structure, and objectives, please visit the PetaJakarta project page.
We do not store any information about users; all information derived from location-enabled mobile devices is stored and displayed anonymously.
