iGDACS provides near real-time information about natural disasters and gives the possibility to send back information in the form of a geo-located image and/or text. The Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System (GDACS) is a cooperation framework between the United Nations, the European Commission and disaster managers worldwide to improve alerts and information exchange. iGDACS is intended to tap the abundant information about disasters available from people who actually experience them. Reports of the iGDACS users are used to improve the overall situational picture.
