Organizations may join the DHN if they are humanitarian focused, engaged in digital response, or have volunteers ready to support.  If a requesting organization fulfills all three requirements, and is approved by the existing members, then it becomes a "Member".  As such, Members range in organizational structure from large corporations to small and medium sized non-governmental organizations, and independent grassroot technologist.  Additionally, Member organizations may vary in volunteer capacity (e.g. handful of specialized volunteers to hundreds of generalist), or by technological skill.  Generally, Member organizations work in areas of mapping, social media monitoring, coding and hacking, visualization and analytics, emergency telecommunications, and social support.  For a list of products that DHN-affiliated Members support, please see the DHN Catalogue.
