Decode Darfur

Decode Darfur is Amnesty International’s effort to monitor attacks on the Darfur region of the Sudan.” Using their computers and phones, 28,600 volunteers from 147 countries contributed more than 9,000 hours in analyzing 326,000 square kilometers of satellite imagery to identify Darfur’s most remote villages. Volunteer “Decoders” compared images of the same village and looked for evidence of attacks, by helping identify significant change in buildings and structures over time.
