November, 2017


Urban Risk Lab launched Riskmap.in - Crowdsourced flood reporting platform in the city of Chennai, India. During the first week of November, Chennai has received very heavy rainfall resulting in a disruption in daily life as well as water-logging in many parts. This project will help residents report instances of water logging, flooding, blocked or open drains and fallen trees on a public map in real-time. 

This project is supported by TATA Center of Technology and Design and is deployed in partnership with Chennai based not-for-profit organization, Citizen Consumer and Civic Action Group (CAG).
