Helping Local Communities with Maps
Mapping for Change has a mission to "empower individuals and communities to make a difference to their local area through the use of mapping and the applications of geographical information". To help realise this mission Mapping for Change is working to provide maps and techniques that will help communities to improve their environments.
You can explore the maps developed by Mapping for Change on the 'Projects' page of their website. The projects include two Google Maps developed by community groups, the UK Climate Map and the Northfleet Big Local. The 'Projects' page also includes detailed information about each project and how Mapping for Change worked with each community group to help them develop their mapping skills.
