Hi Mhairi and Russ,

Yes, Ushahidi (with instances hosted for example at crowdmap.com) is an
alternative to uMap. From my point of view, having used both on various
cases, the main criterion to choose between the two if whether the
general public will be entering and locating directly the incident
reports, or whether it'll mainly be you and a team entering and locating
them, even approximately, from social media reports. In the first case,
the extra administrator approval step of Ushahidi is justified,
otherwise I'd rather use uMap.

Kind regards,

Jean-Guilhem
