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 is special because:

  • Specialises in providing Open Data which means that it can provide the raw data, in various formats, including on maps (not just narrative documents which need to be manually searched).
  • Built on an open source Rapid Application Development framework and supported by a global community of volunteers, so new features can quickly be developed in response to changing requirements on-the-ground.
