Earlier this month, USAID launched its first crowdsourcing event to geocode and open development data. Yesterday, USAID released the  complete dataset, associated map, and case study at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars


The dataset and map represent 117,000 loans that were made by private financial institutions due to risk-sharing agreements with the U.S. Government. USAID also released a case study about its effort that can help others leverage the power of "the crowd" for similar efforts.
