Verification and geolocation classes at WEASA 2020
Day three at WEASA focused on geolocation, verification, and fact-checking. Participants met with Myriam Redondo, who taught them about tools such as reverse image searches, analysing online maps, terrain maps, satellite imagery, and more.
The first part of the day consisted of a series of talks about tools. During the afternoon workshop, participants received a single image of an event that was recently featured on the news and were asked to, using the tools they learned about in the morning, answer a series of questions about it, including the position of the photographer, location of the image, and the event during which it was taken.
