This is a diagram illustrating some of the value exchanged in a collaborative crisis mapping platform. Green lines represent monetary transactions, white lines indicate direct use or utility, orange lines indicate flows of less tangible value that are more difficult to quantify.
The smaller bubbles indicate what I call 'multipliers.' They reinforce pre-existing relationships that make the ties between two entities stronger and more binding. An Ushahidi deployment is used as the platform in this particular example.
