Sanitation map that shows sanitation infrastructure

Short Description 

Sanimap: A crowdsourced public worldwide map that shows existing sanitation infrastructure. 

Project Description 

Sanimap.com is a project idea that arose from a (stalled) sanitation-related map online under sanimap.net. The basic idea was to have a public, crowdsourced map that would display sustainable sanitation projects worldwide. This initial aim has been expanded to also include conventional wastewater treatment (infrastructure) where available (i.e. municipal sewage treatment plants) to include as many stakeholders as possible.

Sanimap.COM currently forwards to a WebGIS installation at the Harvard WorldMap Project. Inititial tests have been done with Ushahidi/Crowdmap and cartodb.com. Further information on sanimap can be found on the forum of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance @ http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/21-events/2325-hacking-toilets#…

The ultimate aim would be to have an online map that is fed by crowdsourced data from various groups and that delivers exportable data for further use as indicators on projects and for urban planing initiatives (and what else kind of juju can be generated from useful data).
