Webinar: Colonialism in Open Data and Mapping

With Big Data platforms using Earth Observation and Geospatial data,  data colonialism, data feudalism, data extraction raises many ethical questions around the rise of digital monopolies and the power imbalance that could create and its impact on the global society. It is essential that we advance the dialogue on developing ethical principles and solutions as a means to help address these issues.

The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team will held the webinar titled ‘Colonialism in Open Data and Mapping’, 26 February. There is a 06:00 UTC session and a 16:00 UTC session.
