MAppERS (Mobile Application for Emergency Response and Support) is a EU project funded under programme 2013-2015 Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection, ECHO A5. The project dealt with the capacity of human sensors towards smartphone application (SA) in the context of prevention and crisis support for natural hazards. Actors of civil protection and the crowdsourcing create local and context-specific strategies of surveillance and territorial management.

The bug-fixing and training have been set during piloting and the crowdsource becomes a continuous source of development, testing and updating of each smartphone components.
