Organizations may join the DHN if they are humanitarian focused, engaged in digital response, and have volunteers ready to support.  If a requesting organization fulfills two requirements, and is approved by the existing members, then it becomes a "supporting member".  As such, members range in organizational structure from large corporations, to small and medium 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 the technology skills of volunteers.  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.
