Risks and challenges
We anticipate just a few hurdles, but we have plans to overcome them!
Copyright: The PIVOT team checks and double checks historical and modern photos for usage rights with our resident archivist.
Data Sources: Right now we are relying mainly on public domain images. Eventually we will move on to crowd -sourcing after implementing verification processes in our mobile app and web-based dashboard.
Verification of Information: We want our database to contain images that have been verified for their exact time and location/vantage point of picture taken!
We are partnering with reputable institutions such as Institute of Palestine Studies and Zochrot - and have also met with bigger institutions such as Library of Congress and Smithsonian, to learn how they verify the "provenance" (or the chronology of the origin or ownership) of a photograph.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
