ABOUT US

Tracker is an initiative to crowdsource information about global data outages critical to Internet Infrastructure. At its core, Tracker is built around Ushahidi – a crowdsource, geolocation software tool. The project aims to crowdsource, primarily from twitter and other mediums like Mobile Web, E-mail(s), Smartphone Apps, information about the data outages happening globally. The primary aim of the website is to collect data from people and make it accessible in various formats and provide it back for public use.

The data is crowd sourced and belongs to the crowd and is licensed under Public Domain Dedication and License, which means anyone is free:

1. To Share: To copy, distribute and use the database.
2. To Create: To produce works from the database.
3. To Adapt: To modify, transform and build upon the database.

Without any restriction, as the data is generated by the crowd(people) it belongs to them.
