Weave

‘Weave’ is a field tool for building a collaborative map in changing chaotic situations; recording routes as the user moves through the landscape. Medics, soldiers, workers and community members on ground level build a live reference of newly formed routes, aiding transportation and accessibility. On their journeys they identify new landmarks, roadblocks and unsafe areas by position and image tagging. This becomes a visual tool of the progress, adapting itself to the changes of the unstable infrastructure.

‘Weave Analytics’ is a partner application for analysing and observing this field data over the timeline of the disaster. Routes and landmarks collected from the users moving around the field, can be visualised on comparative maps, with accessible information, including an image, when it was added and removed, and by whom. Command centers and analysts can assess this data in real-time, or afterwards, to strategise and observe the ensuing aid mission and re-construction.
