Update: OSF Wraps Digital Media Mapping Project

As we noted in this space on March 28, CIMA was pleased to participate in the Open Society Foundation’s Mapping Digital Media project over the past few years.

Today, Marius Dragomir, senior manager and publications editor for the OSF’s Program on Independent Journalism, writes about the conclusion of the project. Dragomir’s article traces the project’s evolution from its initial concept–to look at the switchover to digital broadcasting in Europe–to a “comparative study that covered not only digital broadcasting but also the internet, and that expanded from a European project into a global one spanning 60 countries on all continents, ranging from Montenegro to Nicaragua to China to Tunisia.”

It was a massive undertaking, and it has added a great deal of value to our understanding of the digital media landscape around the world.
