Bing Maps on UNCHR Help Protect and Empower Refugees

A Bing Maps mash-up by ShootHill launched on UNCHR to show geographical information on refugees, refugee assistance offices, and refugee-related stories from around the globe.

Shoothill’s described how they used Bing Maps and Silverlight technology to create a strong mapping element highlighting country-specific refugee information. A coloured heatmap allows users to clearly see the locations of each camp, internally displaced people, returnees and asylum seekers, as well as UNHCR office locations.
