New term, new Mapathon! – February 2018

IMG_20190206_150618One month into the new term, we had a mapathon in the Geography Department this week! This time we used Amnesty International’s Decoder platform. Our project was looking through satellite imagery of Raqqa, Syria and identifying buildings to narrow down the windows of damage when they were destroyed.


Check out Amnesty International’s website to find out more about the work they are doing and why they have chosen to track strikes in Raqqa.

Join us in our next marathon on 27th February 2019 that will take place from 3-4pm at Bush House NE 6.05.
