GroupMappers volunteers are based in Bangladesh where the initial goal is to map communities in selected rural areas. During this pilot phase, we are developing and optimizing the methods. In the longer term, we plan to apply and adapt these methods to map other geographic features and expand the activities to other countries in South and Southeast Asia.
Where We Work
We support communicable disease control programs under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW) in Bangladesh through collection of high quality, high resolution geospatial data. The initial goal is to map communities in selected rural areas. Once, complete, the next stap will be to label the polygons with the names of communities through crowdsourcing.
