In this episode of Intercross the Podcast, we sit down with Matthew Gibb, GIS Officer at the American Red Cross. Each year, disasters around the world devastate millions of people. But many communities are missing from the maps that responders use to deliver lifesaving aid. In our conversation, we talk about how the American Red Cross and partner organizations are using the power of crowd-sourcing and remote volunteers to put millions of people from high-risk countries on the map since 2014. Hosted by Niki Clark and Sara Owens.
