A collaborative space for investigative journalism and citizen fact-checking.
Bellingcat gathers together open source and social media investigations by citizen journalists and interlinks them. The company uses open source and social media data to investigate a variety of topics. By using geospatial data, the company is able to find the original location where footage is shot. This information is used to verify the validity of the footage. Bellingcat was founded in 2014 by Eliot Higgins.
