SBTF & MicroMappers Activation for Vanuatu

Activation for Vanuatu starts immediately

We have received an activation request from the Government of Vanuatu (via the World Bank). The Core Team believes this meets our activation criteria so we are activating the Standby Task Force immediately.

We really need your help now.

Our deployment

We have been asked to support the activation via the MicroMappers platform.

The World Bank has deployed several Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). These are remote control helicopters & planes with cameras. The UAVs have taken pictures of the disaster affected islands.

(More information on the UAV mission here).

Our task is to help the Vanuatu Government quickly identify which houses have been damaged by simply looking at the aerial photographs.

More information including how to join the deployment is available to Standby Task Force members on the Ning.
