Analysis / Assessment Matrix Tool
Version 0.4. It is tested for Ushahidi v2.2.
About this plugin:
In view of the increasing need to qualify and verify crowdsourced information, the ICT4Peace Foundation helped the development of the Matrix plugin for the Ushahidi platform. This plugin essentially requires pre-trained reporters in the field tagging reports with the following for reports they enter into the system:
Source Reliability Information Probability
When the reports are filtered into the back-end, administrators via the analysis plugin would then see the attached matrix on tagged reports, which helps with making analyses', finding related reports and/or possibly creating new reports to shield the actors involved in some of these reports.
The Matrix plugin can also complement technologies such as SwiftRiver by Ushahidi, providing a more nuanced view of ground reports that can feed into more timely decision-making, plus providing a more robust foundation for accountability.
