WE DON'T JUST BUILD MAPS.

WE BUILD MAPPERS.

Capitalizing on web-based open geospatial technologies, and a network of universities around the globe, our mission is to cultivate a generation of young leaders to create resilient communities and  to define their world by mapping it.

WHAT WE ARE MAPPING NOW

LONG TERM DEVELOPMENT CHALLENGES

The need for geospatial data goes beyond the urgency of disaster response or planning. YouthMappers are also contributing time and talents to creating data in places of extreme poverty, where USAID works, to help create fundamental data for programming that addresses chronic development problems.
