UNOSAT was invited to participate to the first International Conference on Crisis Mapping organized by the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI) and the Department of Political Science at John Carroll University (JCU). The conference took place in Cleveland, Ohio, 16-18 October 2009 with the purpose to bring together the most engaged practitioners, scholars, software developers and policymakers at the cutting edge of crisis mapping to define the future of the field along with best practices and lessons learned.

Over 60 organizations were represented and multiple partnerships were formed on specific projects during the conference. UNOSAT gave an ignite talk on the UN’s use of satellite imagery during crises and chaired the roundtable discussion on satellite crisis mapping.
