Project description

Because of wars in Africa family members are missing, separated and displaced. That is the current case in Ivory coast. This web and mobile based application will allow people to locate their family members using a map locator. 

The AfricanLocator is a location-based web application that provides displaced and missing war victims a way to disclose their geographical location, therefore allowing family members to reconnect and find each other. War victims using their mobile phones will be able through SMS to text their position by including their:

  1. Full Name
  2. Data of birth
  3.  Location (country and or city)

The information will be stored in a centralized database, and the information will be available on the GeoSeek.me website. Family members can then use the GeoSeek map and search module to locate and find their missing relatives.

We have decided to leverage GeoFeed and what Ebot has done already. Basically Ebot has agreed to add an additional module for the AfricanLocator, so that we can move fast in order to help war victims in CIV. We purchased the domain geoSeek.me as a strategy to port later on the AfricanLocator module in its own system. This means:

  1. AfricanLocator will be hosted within GeoFeed.me
  2. We need to get a SMS center service provides to handle the SMS messages that war victims will be sending.
  3. The GUI will be mainly composed of a location map and a people look up search component

There is a strong deadline for this project, we want to have it ready in a few months in order to help out war victims from Ivory Coast.

Come join us to make this come a reality as quick as possible.
