Safety information by the crowd: halaat-o-meter

Our production office is based in Karachi (Pakistan), a great and vibrant city but not a typical place when it comes to safe traveling. As we, and our 20 million fellow citizens, often wonder if we can travel safely to certain areas of our city, we decided to build a halaat-o-meter. A platform for anyone to share the current safety situation in his neighborhood, using Google Maps, Facebook, and the user’s input.

‘Halaat’ is the word used in Pakistan for ‘situation’ and we feel that this platform is especially suitable for Pakistan, but it can be used in any place. This is only the first version, enhancement suggestions are welcome!
