Crowdsource for Climate Hazard Mapping

It is often challenging to find ready to use spatial data on climate hazards and vulnerable locations. Using crowd-sourcing technology, city hubs can ask their citizens / key stakeholders to map relevant hazards. The resulting dataset can be used to validate / ground-truth model data or help prioritize actions. 

End users

  • Citizens 
  • City departments 
  • Other relevant stakeholders 

Added value

When no local data is available, for example on local pluvial flood risk, crowd-sourced maps can make a difference 


Developed for Asian cities, for a relatively small amount (approx. 100) users. Needs to be scaled up?
