MapAction disaster management operation in Indonesia

SHARE

Indonesia: A field-based MapAction’s team of two has been deployed to Yogyakarta, backed up by more GIS resources in the UK as a part of the response to the earthquake disaster on May 28 in Yogyakarta, Java. In Indonesia the team will work alongside the UN’s emergency information management team. MapAction’s mission is to translate fast-changing situation information into map form. Maps will show needs for and provision of relief. This helps humanitarian agencies both within and outside Indonesia to ensure that aid reaches the right places, quickly.
