Summary:

"'It is unethical for researchers to justify their actions as ethical simply because the data is accessible,' wrote Danah Boyd and Kate Crawford from Microsoft Research in a 2011 report about Big Data. Irresponsible data use in development can not only result in wasted resources and damaged relationships, but more importantly can lead to harm for at-risk groups or individuals.

This article will explore the norms for ethics that are developing in the field of data for development particularly with the use of geospatial data, and what progress still needs to be made and how different actors can come together to establish these norms."
