Open Data Kit

Open Data Kit (ODK) is a suite of tools to help organizations collect, aggregate and visualize their data. Our goals are to make open-source and standards-based tools which are easy to try, easy to use, easy to modify and easy to scale. To this end, we are proud members of the OpenMobile Consortium, the OpenRosa Consortium, and active participants in the JavaRosa project.


This open-source software for mobile devices is focused on primary health homecare. The goal is to use mobile tools to promote the improvement of health services for people with low incomes.


Ushahidi (Swahili for "testimony" or "witness") is a website created in the aftermath of Kenya's disputed 2007 presidential election (see 2007–2008 Kenyan crisis) that collected eyewitness reports of violence sent in by email and text-message and placed them on a Google map.[1] It is also the name of the open source software developed for that site, which has since been improved, released freely, and used for a number of similar projects.


Sana is a standard-focused open-source system that supports audio, images, location-based data, text, and in the future, video.
