The project is very valuable and provides fantastic insight to the subjects as it tries to get first hand information from the writers from/within the countries in question. I think this way it creates an alternative resource to those that are prepared by Western institutions by going to these countries for few weeks only. Therefore GISWatch provides a much more authentic information.

The GISWatch Project provides very useful insights into today's information society through the lens of different country experiences. A reader is allowed to properly gauge the ongoing interaction between technology and human rights, and its impact on people's day-to-day lives.
