Open Source GIS Series - The Ushahidi Platform

What is the Ushahidi Platform? from Ushahidi on Vimeo.

Ushahidi(meaning testimony in Swahili) was created in the beginning of 2008 in order to map incidents of violence and peace efforts after the Kenyan elections. The project could effectively handle mobile and web submissions by 45000 users in Kenya. According to the project website, the platform was later rebuilt for effective deployment.
