The reality of many communities is that Internet connectivity is unreliable, or non existent. For that reason Earth Defenders Toolkit can be deployed to computers on the ground so that all content can live offline, in a local network, and can be synced whenever the device goes online.
A computer running EDT offline creates a hotspot, where people with devices in wifi range can download, install, and use applications curated on the Earths Defender’s Toolkit platform. We've organized content around topics such as community mapping and land-based storytelling. For each of these topics we provide guides, use cases, assets and helper applications, which are made available through a simple interface.
On the local network, community members have access to applications for storing and sharing their content. The featured tool Terrastories can also be used locally.
