Crisis Mapping: Bangladesh Cyclone Shelter Mapping Project
Dear all, 

As the cyclone Mahasen is heading slowly towards Bangladesh, Mapping Bangladesh community initiated a Cyclone Shelter Mapping project on 14 May 2013 at 21:00 with the aim to map all Cyclone Shelters of Bangladesh throughout 119 Sub-districts in 16 coastal districts as soon as possible. Ten Regional Expert Reviewers (RERs) started working immediately after the project was proposed by Altaf-uz-Zaman and many of them kept mapping overnight. The shelters are now being mapped on a first-priority basis. 

To successfully map all the shelters with accuracy and precision, we are using the Cyclone Shelter Information Database, a government e-database on cyclone shelters across the country. RERs also opened up a Completion Plan Spreadsheet to monitor and record progress. Mapping Bangladesh community is working hand-in-hand with Google Bangladesh and Google Crisis Response Team who helped the community significantly by creating a spreadsheet from the e-database figures and also imported that data into a Google Fusion Table which generated a map of shelters, speeding up the overall process of the project.

The RERs were able to complete approximately 20% of the project in 20 hours; at this pace, it should take us about 4 more days to map all the cyclone shelters of the country. Right now, mapping shelters in Chittagong District is on the top of our list and all RERs are collaboratively working on this. As of 8:00 PM May 15, about 30% of shelter mapping in Chittagong District has been completed. Mapping shelters in this district is our first priority because it is expected that it is going to be hit the hardest by the cyclone Mahasen.
There are about 3634 Cyclone Shelters in the 16 coastal districts of the country, some of them also accommodating schools. Our aim is to map all the shelters as fast as possible to help in pre and post-cyclone disaster management and rehabilitation work of Bangladesh.

A Crisis Map of Bangladesh is live on our website with important details here: crisis maps of bangladesh | mappingbangladesh

If you or your relatives are prone to danger, please use the information and share the site address with them to let them locate the nearest shelter to their location.
Stay safe, everyone!

Dear All,
It's time to save our country from a Disaster.
