Crisis Mapping of Conflict Zones

The United Nations has launched an initiative to do “crisis mapping” of conflict zones, such as Libya, using social media online.

The Chronicle of Higher Education has a story about how academics around the world are participating in the UN effort at crisis mapping of the Libyan civil war.  See the Crisis of Libya Map, sponsored by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
