ICCM 2012: Josh Campbell, Imagery to the Crowd

Josh Campbell from the Humanitarian Information Unit at the US Department of State, discusses building a framework to support sharing high-resolution satellite imagery with the volunteer technical community, for improved disaster response and development projects. Crowdsourcing enables the humanitarian response community to have access to road maps being rapidly improved with updated, detailed information, demonstrated initially by the Humanitarian Open Street Map team’s work on the Haiti Crisis Map.

Josh examines how sharing high-resolution satellite imagery with the crowd will help improve crisis maps, discussing two prototype projects: 1. live mapping refugee camps in the Horn of Africa and 2. generating fire risk maps of Gulu, Uganda.
