What’s a “Geoblog”?

imagesA partnership between Google Earth and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Genocide Prevention Mapping Initiatives has led to a new “geoblog” entitled World is Witness.

The “geoblog” chronicles genocide and crimes against humanity across the globe – from Rwanda to Darfur to the Congo. Visitors can find compelling articles, maps of crisis-laden areas, informative videos, podcasts, external links to related websites, and much more.

Opinions expressed on this “geoblog” come from several renowned supporters of peace in Darfur and human rights defenders including Adam Sterling, John Prendergast, Eric Reeves, Brian Steidle, and Alex de Waal.

So much useful info is at your fingertips thanks to World is Witness. Take advantage of it.
