HI Michael, thanks for you note.

We are working to anonymize the Haiti data to release the datasets for academics. I will let you and the community know when this is ready.

We definitely want to encourage more research. However, best practices to safeguard the privacy of those who report is also important.

Ushahidi Community,
For my thesis I am trying to compare authoritative and VGI data sources for the Haiti earthquake of 2010. It is important for my research to set the datum for the latitude and longitude in the csv correctly, but I can't find which datum was used for this deployment. I've searched the wiki and forums for "datum", "wgs84", and "nad83" but didn't get any hits.

Thank you for any help you can provide.
