What’s the data behind the story? HURUmap gives infomediaries like journalists and civic activists an easy ‘plug & play’ toolkit for finding and embedding interactive data visualisations into their storytelling.
HURUmap’s underlying data is quality-checked, from reputable official sources including the government Census, PEPFAR and Uwezo.
The project is built on Wazimap, an open source platform by OpenUp and Media Monitoring Africa for making census data more understandable.
