Human dynamics - movements, behaviors, attitudes - are mapped with more confidence as data streams converge. Mapping humanity is more possible and more real-time than ever.

Dr. Jamon Van Den Hoek is an Associate Professor of Geography in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University. Jamon leads the Conflict Ecology lab where he and his students use multi-sensor satellite imagery and large volume geospatial data to monitor urban conflict, forced displacement, and long-term environmental and climatic changes in fragile contexts around the world. He has recently written about limitations and opportunities of monitoring wars with multi-temporal satellite imagery, gauging the detection of refugee camps with satellite-based human settlement datasets, and measuring SDG progress in refugee settings with open geospatial data. Prior to joining Oregon State, Jamon was a Postdoctoral Fellow at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and completed his PhD at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he was a National Science Foundation IGERT Fellow.
