The Data Art Review: Visualizing the Voices of Vulnerable Populations in Times of Global Crisis
Visualizing the Voices of Vulnerable Populations in Times of Global Crisis
"During the summer of 2010, UN Global Pulse, an innovation initiative in the Executive Office established by the Secretary-General, launched an unprecedented, large-scale SMS survey to participants in 5 countries around the world: India, Iraq, Mexico, Uganda, and Ukraine. The study aimed to gather data about how people in these different regions are coping with the ongoing impacts of the global economic crisis. Researchers hope that gathering such data will aid a larger effort to develop a contemporary approach to real-time crisis impact monitoring that uses emerging technologies."
