ReliefWeb Disaster Tracker

ReliefWeb is a leading source authoritative and vetted information about disasters and humanitarian crises. This application combines ReliefWeb's new REST API with a custom-built Twitter timeline-processing script to give authoritative, real-time updates on an occurring disaster.

Use the application as is, or join in the development of the application. This is an open source project that can be rolled out quickly to track information during a disaster.

  1. git clone git@github.com:reliefweb/disaster-tracker.git
  2. cd disaster-tracker
