Lars Bromley devotes his career to promoting the human-rights community in countries such as South America. Using GIS, data compilation and data analysis he, along with his “Geospatial Technologies and Human Rights Project” team, provide hard evidence to corraborate witness statements of human-rights violations. Some of the things that digital imagery and digital mapping resources can do is locate small isolated villages that are affected by artillery shelling. One of the main focuses is to make sure the evidence is clear, concise and easy to understand. Bromley takes his research very seriously, trying not to let the tradegies get to him; i.e. mapping civilian causualties. The purpose is to inform others, not to scare them.
