This was an unfunded pilot project run by the members of GroupMappers in Bangladesh. The study area was covered in most areas of Bandarban and a few areas of Rangamati and Cox’s Bazar districts in southeastern Bangladesh. The main objective of the study was to develop a simple, low cost and time efficient method of geospatial data collection. Therefore a group of people were deployed to extract communities from Google Earth those were selected during a technical workshop held on 15th October 2017 at Cadet College Club in Dhaka, Bangladesh and formed a core expert group.  The study was completed on 15th February 2018 and 3394 km2 areas were accomplished during this study by the team.
