The Sahana Software Foundation have a site up to support the Floods Response in Pakistan:

Although there are a number of information management tools providing resources on the Pakistan Flood Response, Sahana specialises in providing open data which means that instead of just providing narrative documents which need to be manually searched for the required data. This means:

  • It can provide the raw data, in various formats, including on maps, to help the relief efforts and longer term recovery.
  • Because Sahana is built on an open source Rapid Application Development framework and supported by a global community of volunteers, new features can quickly developed in response to changing requirements on-the-ground.
