About InRelief.org

InRelief.org’s mission is to increase the velocity of the response during Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR) events by connecting military/civilian organizations, disseminating data freely over the internet, and providing the collaborative tools to expedite the sharing of critical information.

Connecting Organizations
By utilizing technical and social networks, we connect organizations before, during, and after catastrophic events. 
Disseminating Data
We aggregate data from the State Department and other agencies, United Nations (UN) and member organizations, Department of Defense (DoD), and Non-Government Organizations (NGO) to present vital information via innovative Web services.
Collaborative Tools
We facilitate the coordination and sharing of information critical to accomplishing missions through customized and collaborative cloud-computing solutions.
Geospatial Imaging
We facilitate the gathering of imagery and Geographic Information System (GIS) data via high-bandwidth connections, processing information into multiple formats and delivering output via web services, including low-bandwidth delivery into disaster areas.
