Until recently, the downside has always been that getting these observations has been a slow, laborious and biased process. With the arrival of the social media, getting local content has all of a sudden become easier. And that's where Floodtags come in.
- For governments and NGOs in Indonesia: You can already sign-up and monitor the floods by our search query and filters. If you want more, such as a configuration of the map for your region, just drop me an email and we will connect you!
- For universities and knowledge institutes with research in this field: Please email us to see if we can cooperate to improve the service delivery to flood and disaster managers in Indonesia and elsewhere in the world (and meanwhile increase the visibility of your research for the public good).
- For developers: If you already have a great website and hesitate using Floodtags for its front-end, please note that you can connect to our API and use our data and functionality in your website! As an example, we connected the Floodtags API to J-FEWS (Jakarta’s flood early warning system under the Ministry of Public Works) so they can monitor Floodtags via their existing information system.
- If you are a citizen: Please sign-up and use the service to help your fellow citizen cope with the floods. You can do so either individually or by teaming up with a local organisation in your neighbourhood. Together we can be better prepared for floods!
