Resource Map

Resource Mapping helps people track their work, resources and results geographically in a collaborative environment accessible from anywhere.

The challenge:

Organizations need to track resources such as facilities, human capacity, stock levels, and more. In addition, they need to be able to share this information, and visualize it geo-spatially. Unfortunately, high-end GIS services are expensive, hard to use, lack inclusive collaboration features, and are not designed around the needs of mobile workers.

The tool:

Resource Map helps people track their work, resources and results geographically in a simple and collaborative environment that can be accessed from anywhere. Users can create shared or private maps which all them to see and update the information anytime, and perform queries and updates even over SMS (such as getting the free bed availability in the nearest 3 clinics). Resource Map is an open-source Ruby tool that integrates with mobile platforms for updates and queries.
