Syria: Implementing Ushahidi to track protests

Syrian Revolution Map is a new Ushahidi instance launched in Syria to track ongoing protests in several cities based on citizen reports of protests, security patrols, dangerous locations, clashes, and anticipated gatherings. Six protesters have reportedly been killed in Daraa, and dozens have been arrested. The website is in Arabic (some English and French) and allows people to send reports using email, twitter, or a form. The site also enables users to sign up for notifications of reports within 20 Km (12 miles) of any location.
