This page contains near realtime flood impact assessments following recent floods in the Jakarta, Indonesia. Flood data used here is sourced from PetaJakarta.org who use crowd sourcing data from twitter, qlue, detik.com and expert data review by BPBD-DKI. This information is used by disaster managers to help them understand the potential scale of a disaster and to respond faster to the hardest hit communities. This is particularly important in the first few hours after a flood when it may be difficult to get accurate on-the-ground information. Although this service is currently specific to Jakarta, the platform is extensible so that we can add more cities and regions easily.
