NeedMapperNoNeedMapper maintains an up-to-date map display of outstanding requests for help (for both goods and services). We use a system that lets organizations and individuals add requests by texting 607-269-HELP or using a form on our website, and then remove them by texting the word 'DONE'. Volunteers and people wishing to give donations can see a list of active requests and their locations at http://www.needmapper.com. Made by @jenniferturliuk & the @ordermapper team & sponsored by @twilio. Requested by various organizations - happy to work with others to customize.www.needmapper.com@ordermapper & @jenniferturliukneedmapper@gmail.com

In progress. Join #gasmap on irc.freenode.net to help.

Looking to utilize info from GasBuddy, and pull updates from Twitter too.

Please review the Hackpad - there are very good sources of up-to-date fuel data from AHC and IMSOCIO that are likely better than other sources.
Sparkrelief.orgYes - always (node.js devs, front end devs, designers, UX/UI help, etc)Sparkrelief.org is an established 501(c)3 nonprofit that allows community members to offer and find relief information that is clearly mapped on our website. Sparkrelief is 100% community driven and has a core team of 3 people based in NY and Boulder, Colorado.

We work with many projects that want to integrate into a single disaster relief platform that creates simplicity for those giving and getting help. We'd love to integrate with other projects that are building out specific functions or features of our vision for a cohesive disaster relief platform.

We would love to be in touch with anyone interested: taylor@sparkrelief.org
taylor@sparkrelief.orgEstablished 501(c)3 still working on making our product better. We were made to be used in every disaster in any english speaking country and are expanding every day.

A Multi-media story platform for survivors to tell their storiesPlatform by which, through which, survivors can share their stories Somewhat related to Sandy timelineCowbird (www.cowbird.com) is a great platform for this. We could offer this simple storytelling tool to Sandy victims. Just need someone to coordinate, and story collectors. Once collected, the stories are embeddable on external websites (organization website; news media website). Please email annie@cowbird.com to learn more.

Trying a crowdsourced map to see if this keeps the content fresher.

Businesses not paying hourly workersMany hourly workers won't get paid for missing work due to Sandy. We need to track these business and urge them to pay their hourly workers
CanvassingSmartphone application that allows volunteers to keep track of the apartments they have visited, what supplies where given, and any special attention that is needed. It would have to work with technology that does not rely on cell or Wifi network, i.e. Bluetooth. Upon a volunteer returning to the distribution center they can upload (through Bluetooth) their results and move to the next building. I am thinking of a peer-to-peer network hybrid where a organization can have master peers at the distribution center that will collect all the data and sort them by building to give an overall picture of what has been done and what needs to be done.Check out needmapper.com and email needmapper@gmail.com if you think we can help

Canvassing, Part 2Alternate take on the canvassing project from row 33: In addition to what is discussed above, an approach with a simple, straightforward webpage (that can even load in the blackberry's browser) is perhaps more useful if the cell phone network is up, since data can be collated immediately. I have no skills in this regard, but wanted to suggest this perspective (which is not the only valid one).
CBO Map Help (Google Fusion Tables)Who's helping the first responders, Community Based Organizations? Many of the smallest ones need help so they can help their communities. But they need a voice. My organization is a nonprofit that works with these CBO's. We're trying to reach out to those we have relationships with, and to aid that I've been trying in my non-coder way to develop a map that would be useful to see which orgs we work with were in Zone A so we can reach out and advocate for them. I could use some quick help as my Fusion Table Layers aren't showing my data, only the public data. Also open to any and all improvements / other ideas.Thanks!Community Resource ExchangeRussell Feldmanrfeldman@crenyc.org646-842-1296Code from wizard: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/35648214/Sandy_Evac_SITE/ftl_sandy_code.html What I'm after: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/35648214/Sandy_Evac_SITE/goal_fusion_tables_layer_wizard_preview.pngSusansusan.e.mcgregor@gmail.comAwaiting response from organization

Crowd-sourced Hurricane Report DataSeeClickFix is online and mobile platform for reporting non-emergency issues to local governments (i.e. a modern, international 311 system).

We Have, We Need - NYCThere are dozens of these now. See recovers.org, interocc sandyA platform for posting and communicating "haves" and "needs". One possible use is for site-coordinators to request volunteers be posting them as "needs". Its pretty much ready to go, we're looking for users. Registration is currently not open to public, ideally one person from a given NGO or center would have an account.

Street Network: Registry of Local Neighborhood Communities OnlineYes - developers to contribute to open source registry and display systemTo be prepared for the communication logistics of future disasters, there is a need for a unified registry of local communities online such as neighborhood mailing lists on yahoo or google, facebook groups for apartment buildings and block associations, neighborhood blogs and discussion boards on wordpress /tumblr/everyblock, nextdoor.com private neighborhood social networks, and such that are all indexed and discoverable to community members in a standardized way. A list of Sandy related groups is here: http://bitly.com/sandygroups - The Street Network is a protocol to provide a space online mapped to any place in the physical world based on the postal address of the location as a unique URL (example: http://eastlake.seattle.wa.us.earth.st/ ). Eventually the system can be used as a 'public square' for communication, a collective wiki-like knowledge base, and a simple way to anchor existing information online to a given street, block, neighborhood, city, etc that is easily to reference and share. I need help making a simple database for this registry and a way to embed it into the existing street network. @seankean

Sandy Senior Services resource mapHACKATHON IDEAS:
[]Develop a free-standing WEBSITE that:
[]Embeds ArcGIS version of map w/ more functionality to visualize, search, usage analytics, demographic layers
[]Embeds a crowdfunding donation box
[]Embed form to submit info (currently http://bit.ly/helpsss )
[]Page(s) to List senior services that aren't mappable (Home Care Agencies, legal information) & make it searchable
[]Mobile friendly version of site
[]Make Website & Mobile site auto-zoom to location of IP address
[]Click-to-share buttons (twitter, facebook, email)
[]Links to Facebook & Twiiter; embed most recent tweets
[]Embed form to "Contact Us" w/ suggestions, data sources, & potential partners
[]sponsors/supporters page (logos, website, +/- short description)
[]Big/adjustable & high contrast font for seniors. Make it look pretty w/ good UX.
[]WHAT ARE YOUR IDEAS? Please email me!
* Volunteers to help w/ organize, check, format submitted DATA for spreadsheet that goes to map.
* Looking for community PARTNERS to broaden reach, sustainability, & access to other directories/datasets.
* Contact me if you want to organize senior services data for NJ, CT, Long Island, or other areas onto Google's Crisis Map
We've compiled & are updating list of needs and services for elderly affected by Sandy.
1. Initial version on Google's Sandy Crisis Map includes existing directory of senior services plus some crowdsource details http://bit.ly/sssmap
Now asking community orgs to tell us their needs& services http://bit.ly/helpsss so map will have richer updated info.
2. Want to make map a long-term community resource beyond Sandy relief. So dev website+/- mobile app that allows search/filter & analytics, probably with ArcGIS map.
