Mapping Infrastructure Damage in Ukraine
The United Nations Development Programme and the Ukrainian NGO Social Boost have collaborated to release a mobile application which allows residents in Donetsk and Lugansk to map damage to buildings.
Using the application residents in in the war-torn region of East Ukraine can upload information and photos of buildings which have been damaged in the fighting. The information can then be used by aid agencies to help restore critical infrastructure in the area.
Data uploaded using the app appears on the Redonbass interactive map. The Redonbass map includes links to download the app from the App Store or Google Play.
