Data Informed announces a new article, “Crowdsourcing Speeds Satellite Monitoring of Syrian Crisis” available in the news section of the online publication.

Online PR News – 06-June-2012 – Dedham, MA – Tomnod has made a crowdsourcing user interface and machine learning analytical engine to better analyze the nearly six million square kilometers of satellite imagery taken every day, most of which would normally never be viewed by human eyes. The user interface and back end uses volunteers online to precisely and efficiently classify the data which allows for experts to focus their efforts when major events happen. In a proof-of-concept project, Tomnod worked with analysts at First Insight to identify changes on the ground during the ongoing civil conflict in Syria.
