Crowdmap is a tool that allows you to crowdsource information and see it on a map and timeline. It enables anyone to run their own crowdsourcing site without having to know the intricacies of running their own server. It's free and it's yours to use.
Enable anyone too...

3. Visualize it on a map and timeline.
Ordinary people have a voice, and interesting things happen when you aggregate those voices and visualize the results.
