6 earthquake relief management websites

Many organizations are working for the disaster relief and there is no any system that can centralize the information. The IT companies and individuals have started few websites that will facilitate to centralize the information and relief activities. Here are some the list of websites:

1. Quakemap.org

The is a map based website. It shows the data on the basis of maps. Maps showing damage assessments, affected areas with online visualization maps, and downloadable and printable mapping. The goal of this website is to match the earthquake-hit people’s needs with ongoing relief efforts being conducted by various government, non-government and volunteer groups. Reports on this site help others in coordinating and dispatching such relief efforts.

If there are more website then I would definitely like to feature. I would like to suggest everyone not to reinvent the wheel. I really appreciate the time and dedication you have given. The website are created to centralize the information but it seems like its time to centralize the websites too. Let the agencies who wants to work for disaster relief do not get confuse which website to follow. Collaborate not compete.
