(OSM) played a prominent role in assisting Haiti relief efforts by getting historical map data into OSM and making it available to relief workers
. "Crisis response teams and aid groups are now downloading OSM's Haiti map onto their GPS units. There's even a specially designed iphone app for OSM's Haiti map. Another group using OSM's Haiti map is Ushahidi. That's a site that collects web, email and text message reports from Haiti. Those reports are then embedded in an interactive version of OSM's map on Ushahidi's website.
