US NGO's on Google Maps
InterAction, the largest coalition of U.S. based NGOs, has created a series of Google Maps to highlight the work being done by their partners around the world.
The NGO Aid Map currently consists of 6 maps, the Mexico Aid Map, the Haiti Aid Map, the India Aid Map, the China Aid Map, the Horn of Africa Aid Map and the Food Security Aid Map. Each map displays the locations where the NGO organizations are working around the world.
Users of the map can filter the results shown on each map by country, sector and organization. If the user clicks on a marker on a map they can read a detailed description of the project being undertaken at that location.
