Labs Projects

Humanitarian Videos

Phase: BETA

Origin: RW IDEAS

Video reporting has become an increasingly effective way for humanitarian organizations to communicate the work they undertake. ReliefWeb is testing a new humanitarian ‘Videos’ section to help you access a collection of humanitarian information videos from our content partners.

Interactive Timeline Map

Phase: BETA

Origin: RW IDEAS

Visualizing humanitarian information through interactive tools has the opportunity to help users digest multiple and complex information. OCHA’s Visual Information Unit, with technical support of ReliefWeb, has developed a pilot timeline map to display humanitarian information, situation timelines and maps.

Humanitarian Data Exchange

Phase: BETA

Origin: COMMUNITY

Data is critical to making informed decisions during disasters but often humanitarian data is hard to find and use for analysis. We are launching a new lab project to create a prototype data platform for the humanitarian community.

Disaster Tracker

Phase: BETA

Origin: RW IDEAS

ReliefWeb's API enables new tools using ReliefWeb content. As a part of the potential tools to be built using the API, we're launching a disaster tracker prototype to enable filtered access to reports along with external data like Twitter, EM-DAT Disaster Database, and UNDP's Human Development Index. Check out the open source code on Github.

ReliefWeb Mobile

Phase: RELEASED

Origin: RW IDEAS

ReliefWeb Mobile has become the first project to graduate Labs. We're still looking for ways to make it better, and we'd love to hear your ideas.
