Mr. Campbell is a Geographer and GIS Architect at the Humanitarian Information Unit (HIU), a division of the Office of the Geographer and Global Issues, U.S. Department of State. He is the architect of the HIU’s geospatial cyberinfrastructure, referred to as the ‘CyberGIS’, and has built humanitarian-focused mapping applications related to the Syrian refugee crisis, the Horn of Africa famine, and the U.S. response to the AIDS epidemic. He also helped pioneer the Imagery to the Crowd (IttC) initiative, a process that utilizes the CyberGIS to publish USG-purchased commercial satellite imagery, in the form of online web map services, to the volunteer OpenStreetMap (OSM) community. Using these image services, volunteers contribute effort into mapping tasks that directly support the prioritized provision of humanitarian assistance.
