As the crisis continues in Gaza, Al Jazeera is doing its bit to put context around the conflict. We are able to bring the "Mapping the War on Gaza" service in collaboration with the folks at Ushahidi who have successfully used their platform to crowdsource information during recent crisis in Kenya and South Africa.
