What is LAM-TECH's role?
LAM-TECH developed and donated to the people of Sierra Leone an open source software platform called Open Election Data Platform (OEDP) to facilitate free, fair, safe, secure and transparent elections in 2018.
The primary objective of the initiative is to provide an open source and open data web-based tool to collect, aggregate, visualize and share electoral violence incident data, historic and current election data in a manner that is timely, granular, non-discriminatory, available-for free on the internet, complete-and-in-bulk, analyzable, permanently available, non-proprietary and license-free.
The Source Code of the platform is free and available permanently at https://github.com/LamTechFoundationInc/lam-oedp for anyone to review, modify and use.
