Witness Hub

I was involved in this project. I worked on google maps integration to capture and display geodata for users, videos, events, campaigns and boilt down to the Hub Map. From CivicActions' launch post;

Last Wednesday, CivicActions launched the WITNESS Video Hub.

WITNESS uses video and online technologies to open the eyes of the world to human rights violations. In their 15 years, they have mostly helped on-the-ground organizations document human rights violations by providing cameras and support to document these violations. A few years ago, they saw the possibilities and the inevitability of user-generated video, and thus began planning The Hub: a grassroots-driven, participatory media website that enables anyone anywhere in the world with access to the internet to upload, share, discuss and take action around human rights-related media and resources. Through the Hub, organizations, networks and groups around the world are able to bring their human rights stories and campaigns to global attention.

Working with the incredible team at WITNESS, CivicActions built a core video upload, conversion, and playback suite for the Drupal content management system, called Media Mover. With Media Mover as the base, the site provides a comprehensive vocabulary around geography and issues, allowing users to connect immediately by uploading and watching relevant videos, and then joining groups and campaigns around the world.

The launch party was a benefit attended by some celebrities.
