Rappler teams up with Standby Task Force for Project Agos

MANILA, Philippines – Volunteers from all over the world are once again stepping up to help Filipinos affected by Typhoon Ruby (Hagupit), and many of them are doing it without even stepping foot in the country.

Online volunteers from the Standby Task Force (SBTF) mobilized as early as Friday, December 5, to help crowdsource information on typhoon damage and other critical needs. Using Micromapping and Verily technology, the SBTF volunteers analyzed and geo-located social media reports posted on Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites.
