Jamon Van Den Hoek CEOAS [email protected] My current research addresses the need for better information on where vulnerable people live and what their needs are. I map refugee camps using satellite imagery, and use machine learning to find settlements that haven’t been documented yet.; There are many opportunities for undergraduates to get involved with our ongoing refugee camp and IDP (internally displaced person) settlement mapping research. It’s a global project (>60 countries) with thousands of sites involved! Example opportunities include: 1. Contributing to global crowdsourced mapping efforts to document locations, boundaries, and environmental conditions at refugee camps and IDP sites. Having this information will help us answer questions about how refugees use and affect the land in/around their camps or the extent to which IDPs grow food in areas near war zones. 2. Interpreting satellite imagery and other mapping products to identify whether refugee camps or IDP sites are even visible in the imagery. It’s very difficult to train a computer to do this since refugee camps and IDP sites vary in size and appearance country to country, and some sites may only be occupied for a few months at a time. 2021 Slide Link 2021
