More GIS volunteers wanted

Unexpected natural disasters, like earthquakes, can trigger an impressive response from well outside the area affected. An example was the GIS Corps response to Katrina a few years ago.

Well, the recent earthquake in China seems to have generated some interesting responses. A major international competition is well underway for the design of a memorial. And Harvard has established a Geospatial Research Portal to aid in coordinating efforts in response to the disaster.
