Are you a citizen, government official, development partner, researcher, or just an individual somewhere in the world looking for information on Africa? Are you interested in food prices? Polling station locations? Traffic patterns? Hospital facilities? Water and sanitation services? Citizen reported police brutality? Or any ongoing rhetoric on Africa?
Download the BDA App!
BigDataAfrica is committed to filling the data gap in Africa by providing you with interesting and useful data and insights in real-time.
The BigDataAfrica app is also a tool for direct citizen engagement. Freely available for download, and operating as a two-way information highway, it is a platform through which citizens can express their needs and communicate their frustrations in a safe forum. Users can upload photos, text and videos, and have instant access to BDA's archive of similar data resources. We in turn at BDA communicate these needs in the form of data to policy-makers, thereby creating channels for what we describe as “people-focused policy-making”.
The BigDataAfrica App is available for Android, iOS and in HTML5 format. Please send is a message if you have any problems with its use or during download.
