Patrick Meier is an internationally recognized leader on the application of new technologies for crisis early warning, humanitarian response, human rights and civil resistance.

With the help of more than 100 Fletcher students, Tufts undergrads and other volunteers, he created what FEMA called, 'the most comprehensive and up-to-date map available to the humanitarian community.'
