Eyes On Darfur

Eyes on Darfur is a website dedicated to monitoring the ethnic cleansing campaign perpetuated by the Sudanese government against its Southern citizens. Among the features I’ve seen are a ‘call to action’ toggle as well as a ‘crisis’ description page. I found the motion map icon to be the most effective method in conveying the sheer destruction committed by the government forces against civilian targets. The link below is of detailed satellite footage taken of incidents ranging from 2003 to 2007. I hope to include a similar element in my first project for the class.
