Community data, Ebola, and the UN

The humanitarian community’s response to the Ebola crisis is more transparent than many responses in the past, and that transparency includes data. The core datasets from the UN and humanitarian partners are starting to appear here:

If you do anything potentially helpful with the data (visualisations, combining with other data, etc.) please let the UN’s HDX project know, so that they can share it around.
