The PhotoMappers site was created to support the use of apps, maps, and data from the Disaster Crowdsourced Photo initiative. Understanding the initial impacts of disasters can be very challenging, especially without geographic context. NAPSG Foundation (along with URISA's GISCorp) hosts a volunteer-powered platform for quickly finding, mapping, and sharing the location of photos found in news stories and social media platforms. Both public safety agencies and the public can gain situational awareness when photos are placed on the map.
