Parsons MFA DT student Nour Chamoun presented her mapping project A Geography of Colonialism in the International Conference of Crisis Mappers at Google New York, last Thursday November 6th. The project details the story of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, then opens into an interactive map that shows the user what it would be like to experience occupation in the user’s current city. Take a look at it for yourself here.

The International Conference of Crisis Mappers (ICCM) is the leading  humanitarian technology event of the year, bringing together the most important humanitarian, human rights, development and media organizations with the world’s best technology companies, software developers and academics. As thus one of the few neutral spaces where such important conversations can take place, the annual ICCM conference brings together a wide range of diverse actors for important conversations that lead to concrete new projects and deliverables across a variety of diverse domains. As a community of practice, the ICCM thus helps facilitate new projects and catalyzes innovation in the area of humanitarian technology.
