CollabMap

CollabMap is a crowdsourcing platform designed by researchers in the Agents, Interaction, and Complexity Group at the University of Southampton . The platform crowdsources the task of identifying building evacuation routes to a large number of users, by offering them freely available data, such as satellite imagery (e.g. Google Maps), panoramic views (e.g. Google StreetView) and building shapes to carry out this task.
