Satellite Sentinel Project: Protecting Civilians
The Human Rights Center UC Berkeley - Stephens Hall
Geospatial tools have emerged as a powerful resource to document, analyze and display the geographic context, location and extent of human rights abuses. Geospatial data and high-resolution images are increasingly available. At the same time, the spread of geographic information systems and innovative approaches to mapping have a number of potential applications in the field of human rights. This panel will discuss lessons learned and prospects in the use of satellite imagery and other sources of geospatial data, including crowdsourcing, to advance human rights.
