Maps, politics and data sharing

A Palestinian puzzle

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Palestinian towns and cities are being left out of the online mapping revolution. The puzzle of why this is occurring, despite formal street names, GIS expertise and a lack of obvious political/security factors, is likely to be solved by increased sharing by Palestinian governments, international organizations and map makers. An analysis of data collected through interviews, emails and media reports, provides the basis for recommendations to enhance data sharing in support of improving development and accessibility of online maps.
