GIS - Legal Team Meeting

The two teams met to discuss a set of updated goals for the semester.

The legal team is in the process of analyzing reports received from various local and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and governments. The eleven groups taken up by the legal team include:

Independent Student Union of Macedonia
Committee to Protect Journalists
El Hilal
International Organization for Migration
EC Monitors
UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)

The legal team will analyze the reports, if produced, according to Nature and Evolution of the human rights abuses, collection of the data by the group, and knowledge of violations and determination of international character.

Alison, Steve, and Saurabha commented on the geographic information system (GIS) team's approach to the goals, including new ideas in evaluating and designing the forms and fields used in the program.

The team also discussed Suk-yi's work on obtaining several relevant websites for both legal and GIS issues. Matt and Dan will incorporate these websites into the War Crimes site. Dan has been checking into obtaining better maps for the GIS program, and Matt has some new design ideas on a three dimensional spatial map/topography that will give the viewer a better sense of density analysis.

Finally, Steve and Saurabha are preparing a paper version of the interface, which will enable them to work more efficiently on the interface and obtain input from the entire team as to design changes.
