Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Thursday, 24 November 2022 is Google Person Finder.
Google Person Finder is an open source web application that provides a registry and message board for survivors, family, and loved ones affected by a natural disaster to post and search for information about each other's status and whereabouts. It was created by volunteer Google engineers in response to the 2010 Haiti earthquake.
Google Person Finder is written in Python and hosted on Google App Engine. Its database and API are based on the People Finder Interchange Format (PFIF) developed in 2005 for the Katrina PeopleFinder Project.
This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 01:18 UTC on Thursday, 24 November 2022.
