Bellingcat is the hot new citizen investigative journalism site of Elliot Higgins, whose Kickstarter campaign has already raised just shy of £50,000 to support his work using open source tools to report on underreported and ignored stories.
We are huge fans (and Kickstarter backers) of Bellingcat. The social media data Higgins has used for much of his open source analysis is avaliable on CrisisNET and we've employed it in the past to do everything from reveal the faces of ISIS members to track the use of barrel bombs.
Today, our own Jonathon Morgan sat down with Higgins to discuss using CrisisNET to request and use crisis-relevant data. Check it out.
