We have a site up to support the Floods Response in Pakistan.


A new SitRep module has been built to manage:

  • Flood Reports
  • Assessments from WFP
  • School Reports

How To Pages

Need someone to contribute docs on how to enter the data for each category.

Locations Hierarchy

  • L0: Country (Pakistan)
  • L1: Province (Khyber-Pakhtunwa/Sindh)
  • L2: District
  • L3: Union Council
  • L4: Village

Data Entry tasks

Data can be found here:

These can be uploaded as files, but we really want volunteers using a Mechanical Turk process to input the data into the structured fields. We're hoping that the XLS can be imported using our new Spreadsheet Importer, so the focus should initially be on the PDFs.

  • Add Lat/Lon to some of the Districts (just those in Wikipedia have so far been added)
  • Add Local Names/URLs to the Provinces/Districts (Wikipedia have these)
  • Add Rivers from uploaded Flood Report
  • Add Locations from uploaded Flood Report
  • Add School District Reports
    • Enter School Reports within each District
  • Add Organisations from WFP Assessments
  • Add Union Councils from WFP Assessments
  • Add Villages from WFP Assessments
  • Add WFP Assessments' Data

Feature Requests

  • Fresh water source PoIs
  • .represent for irs_iimage.image as a thumbnail (like for gis_marker)
  • When adding a Union Council from a School Report, would be nice to have the Parent pre-populated too
  • Reports
    • Summary info (similar to the SUMMARY-FAP.pdf & WFP .ppt)
    • jqplot?
    • Map
      • KML XSLT (=>Dominic)
    • Would be good to write a custom PDF writer for this format of report so we can consider getting people to enter data into DB directly.
      • split column headers
      • (dominic) A nice printable HTML works as good as custom PDF, but can be achieved sooner
  • Pull in data from Ushahidi instance:
  • Setup GeoServer & import GeoData into that for more advanced GIS
  • Move School Reports to CR as more related to that functionality?
  • PDF Importer?
  • Test the XForms controller with component resource to have OCRable forms to collect this info

Rotary Club

Rotary Club want to train 750-1000 volunteers to collect data.

  • Format of Data: Unknown but maybe ECB's Rapid Assessment Tool - Fran will code this up as a module
  • Want to be able to collect data on offline laptops & sync to base
    • This means that the schema for this module is pretty fixed as we can't update remote laptops
      • Extra data can be incoporated into comments fields for transferring to new optional fields centrally by-hand
      • Can still develop UI tweaks to ease data entry (just won't be visible to remote laptops): Labels/Help
      • Can still develop Reporting functionality
      • Can still develop other modules
    • Power may be an issue, so best to have printed copies of the Assessment Tool as well
    • Sync process should be tested thoroughly (even if kept to a very simple Data upload facility)
  • SMS
    • Outbound to alert teams (working with a local telco to get details)
    • SMS inbound for them to report incidents (separate to the general public whose reports we can pull from Ushahidi so can use the general shortcode)
  • Volunteer Management? (We have a lot of volunteers being managed here!)


None currently :)
