Abstract:     
Crisis mapping is an inter-disciplinary field that aggregates crowd-generated input data, such as social media feeds and photographs, with geographic data, to provide real-time, interactive information in support of disaster management and humanitarian relief. This article, published in the October 2013 issue of Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing, provides a brief overview of the emerging legal and ethical issues within crisis mapping.
