Media Index

ASOR CHI catalogues photographs and video to assist in documenting damage.

ASOR CHI has created a database of over 10,000 media files related to cultural heritage incidents in the conflict zones of Syria and northern Iraq, including photographs, videos, and video stills. Such media is collected from open-source outlets such as online new stories, blogs, and other web posts as well as individuals on the ground and site assessment teams supported by ASOR CHI. ASOR CHI hopes to expand our media database through the mobile app cultural heritage monitor, where users in northern Iraq and Syria can anonymously share photographs of sites.
