Projects / SK Floods

Ushahidi deployment to map and monitor the spring floods in 2011, providing location and images of flood damage.

March 2011

SK Floods was a custom Ushahidi deployment and theme, to collect and share reports from the 2011 spring floods in Saskatchewan.

At that time, there wasn't anything being done to show where and how bad the flooding was in the province. Using the Ushahidi platform, it pulled in tweets and added them to the map, becoming a central place to view all those flood reports.
