Sahana Taiwan are customising & deploying an instance of Sahana Eden.

Initially this is to complement their Sahana Agasti deployment.

The proposal is for this to replace Agasti completely next year.

NCDR (National Science & Technology Center for Disaster Reduction) have a high tech EOC based around ESRI's ArcGIS. However, they are unable to get the data to local governments easily due to licensing costs, so a combination of GeoServer & Eden could help fill this niche. They are also interested in Sahana being able to feed their EOC with crowd-sourced data such as from SMS & Twitter.

Wnhancements that the Sahana Taiwan team are interested in:

New Home Page

  • Provide a summarized page for info overview and status updating (frequency configurable)
  • Allow unauthenticated users to 'Report Incident' (Missing Person, Request Help or Incident) or 'Offer Help' (Volunteer or Pledge Resources)
  • provide top-level stats about # resources registered in system
  • Map overview


Configured to use & Google layers

Want to be able to overlay data from Agasti onto the Eden Map:

  • Shelters

Locations Selector

  • Use Taiwan's 4 levels of hierarchy
  • Local Geocoder service to allow users to enter street address
  • Select from Map


  • A local SMS Gateway is working with the system.
  • This has been tested with Big5 encoding.


  • Want to be able to have users login once to access resources on both systems.
    • OpenID support has been added to Web2Py/Eden
    • Rewrite Agasti to access Eden user table? auth_user
      • Better to hack the legacy Agasti rather then the end-goal Eden


  • Want defined Roles to be active on both systems
    • Memberships should only be defined once
      • Rewrite Agasti to access Eden membership table? auth_membership
        • Better to hack the legacy Agasti rather then the end-goal Eden
  • Need support for the 'Shelter Administrator' role


Translation into Chinese is underway
