Amnesty international is taking satellite imagery out of the war zone and into the homes of the everyday internet user as part of its latest campaign against the war which involves the Sudanese military and Janaweed militia.

Called ‘Eyes on Darfur’, the project uses high-resolution satellite imagery to show before and after depictions of village in Darfur to highlight the affect the war has displaced people and destroyed towns.

The images, displayed using flash, according to Amnesty, will also be used in courts as evidence on the atrocities that have taken place across the nation.

“Amnesty International’s unprecedented Eyes on Darfur project leverages the power of high-resolution satellite imagery to provide unimpeachable evidence of the atrocities being committed in Darfur – enabling action by private citizens, policy makers and international courts,” Amnesty says.
