Knowing where to look: Sources of imagery for geolocation

Knowing where to look: Sources of imagery for geolocation by Eliot Higgins.

From the post:

With geolocation playing a core role in the verification of images, one key part of the process is finding reference information to help confirm the location of the image in question.

As recently covered on First Draft, satellite imagery from Google Earth and other providers can play an essential role in the geolocation of images. But they are not the only sources of information for corroborating material that can help you figure out where a picture or video was taken.

The resources Eliot covers need to be on your internal verification homepage. One-click away from your immediate verification need.

I really like his phrase, “knowing where to look.”

That resonates with so many topic map themes.
