Krisismap.info is a tool to share information and develop interactive maps of the crisis which is haunting the entire globe.

The idea of Krisismap.info has been shaped by Transform!Italia and comes from our research about using maps as cognitive, communicative and organizational devices, in a wider research on new techno-political tools.

Though the project construction will take longer and the portal is at its first steps and still underway, we decided – in collaboration with the network Time For Change Europe (http://www.time-for-change.net/) and with the network “Labor and Globalization” – to put online this first prototype for testing its use in view of the mobilizations and actions which are going to take place around the G20.

Maps construction in this version is open.

In order to create your event on the maps, you only have to login and, after entering the site, click on “Add event” and follow ordinary procedure. After having added an event, it’s also possible to charge ones own images file (with reduced size), videos (from youtube for the moment) and documents.

Information on the site is available to the public. People registered can comment information added by others as well as insert their own events (or other versions of existing events, if necessary).

In the next weeks the construction of the first version of the portal will be finished together with the testing of the tool. At the same time, we will develop talks on how to share this project with other Italian, European and International networks, organizations, movements with which we are long sharing a common work within the alterglobalist movements.
