Launched in 2014, HDX aims to make humanitarian data easy to find and use for analysis undertaken by humanitarian workers across sectors and regions. Actors share the data through an open platform. A team within the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) manages it. The site houses more than 9,800 datasets from 253 locations and 1,200 sources, from companies such as Facebook and the mapping and analytics company Esri. Datasets containing personal information or demographically identifiable information about populations or aid workers are only made available by request for approved users.
