SMART’s Map Jakarta (petajakarta) project has been selected as one of only six world-wide and the only Australian entry, to receive free datasets in the first ever Twitter #DataGrant project from the social media giant.

Map Jakarta is a web-based platform used to harness the power of social media to gather, sort, and display information about flooding for Jakarta residents in real time. The platform runs on the open source software platform CogniCity – a GeoSocial Intelligence Framework developed at the SMART Infrastructure Facility – which allows data to be collected and disseminated by community members through their location-enabled mobile devices.
