Americans for Peace Now launches new “Settlement Map” App

It is our pleasure at Peace Now to share with you that our sister organization in the United States, Americans for Peace Now, has just released its new and improved settlement map mobile application, Facts on the Ground. The app is a staple of our tours and is used by many of the journalists, public figures and diplomats who wish to quickly access Peace Now data when they are out in the field. We highly recommend you download this app and explore the wealth of information it features.

Facts on the Ground Map App

There are numerous reasons for the persistence of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with rejection of Israel’s right to exist, denial of Jewish history, and Palestinian terrorism among the most devastating and pernicious.

But the 51-year-old occupation – which denies Palestinians their rights, corrodes Israeli society and democracy, and continually damages prospects for Israeli-Palestinian peace – is fundamentally anchored in the Israeli settlement enterprise in the West Bank. Settlements stand in the way of a two-state solution by preventing a viable, contiguous, independent state of Palestine, a purpose for which they were explicitly designed.

That’s why Americans for Peace Now is today releasing Facts on the Ground, a new, completely revamped and upgraded version of the groundbreaking settlements map app, available for free on iPhone and Android.

With the help of Peace Now‘s Settlement Watch – the most authoritative, credible source on settlements – Facts on the Ground gives users the ability to track, explore, and gain a comprehensive understanding of the settlements. As a mobile app designed to be used by policymakers, diplomats, journalists, teachers, students, and anyone else interested in the Israeli settlement enterprise, Facts on the Ground is truly one-of-a-kind.

Originally released in 2010, APN’s Facts on the Ground was the first-ever interactive online map of West Bank settlements. The new version features up-to-date statistics and data, including individual “snapshots” of every settlement and outpost in the West Bank. The app includes informational video, a comprehensive glossary, and a new, expansive statistics section from Peace Now. Facts on the Ground also marks the re-launch of APN’s Settlements in Focus publication. New issues, each profiling different West Bank settlements, will be featured on the app and available to all users.

Download APN’s Facts on the Ground for iPhone and Android today.

We rely on your support to maintain this tool and put it in the hands of as many people as possible. Please donate to our “Facts on the Ground 2.0” crowdfunding campaign to support APN’s mission of stopping settlement expansion and preserving the viability of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
