The LRA Crisis Tracker is a realtime mapping platform and data  collection system created to bring an  unprecedented level of transparency to the atrocities of the Lord’s Resistance Army. Using information  sourced from Invisible Children’s Early Warning Radio Network, UN agencies, and local NGOs, this tool 
allows for better response from governments, policy-makers, and humanitarian organizations. This joint project, developed by Invisible Children and Resolve, marks the first time data surrounding the crisis has been comprehensively aggregated and made publicly available.

“We specialize in taking tons of different data and data sets and making it meaningful,” said Dan Khabie, CEO and founder of Digitaria. “We wanted to give people the ability to communicate about what’s going on in the Congo in real-time. The key is how to make technology relevant. In this case it was a combination of technology, data and experience coming together.”
