On Thursday I was invited to discuss PetaJakarta.org on the ABC Illawarra Radio Morning Show with Nick Rheinberger. The interview introduced the concept around crowd-sourcing flood reports in Jakarta, and discussed the use of real-time mapping for Emergency Services in Jakarta, and potentially Australia. You can listen to a recording of the interview via the soundcloud link below.
