Humanitarian Applications / Disaster Response / Search & Rescue / etc

Hi All,

Looking to have a space on DIYDrones where folks can talk about humanitarian applications of personal drones, like Euan Ramsay's recent blog post on using a quad to deliver Search & Rescue payloads:

My own (new) initiative in this space is the Humanitarian UAV Network (UAViators). 

Some projects/resources I've come across (and in touch with):

http://www.openrelief.org

http://www.droneadventures.org

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/UAV

http://www.odihpn.org/humanitarian-exchange-magazine/issue-58/the-promise-and-perils-of-disaster-drones

Anyone else working at the intersection of drone tech and humanitarian response?

Thanks!

Great work you are doing here Patrick. I was in the Philippines with Chuck and Nick. Chuck is on his way back there tomorrow to do more good work.
Thank you for all the support.

My pleasure, many thanks for your kind note! Looking forward to following up with Chuck et al when they're back.
