Current Work / Spatial Practice as Evidence and Advocacy (2015-current)

In 2015 SITU Research received funding to launch SPEA, Spatial Practice as Evidence and Advocacy - a project that is utilizing spatial analysis and visualization in the service of human rights fact finding and reporting. Mobilizing innovating applications of existing and emerging technologies, a primary goal of SPEA is to broaden the 'tool kit' and culture of human rights work to include design as an integral component of legal and advocacy initiatives.

Current case work includes a citizen video archive web application and an interactive water quality report.
