We are very excited to announce the 2018 YouthMappers Research Fellows!
These seven teams were carefully selected to participate in a 9-month program designed to enlist, enable, and showcase the contributions of open geospatial data for research on resilience of vulnerable populations around the world. Over the life of the program, the teams will have the opportunity to interact and exchange ideas with the other teams from around the world!
This summer, they will take part in customized technical training sessions, engage in scientific discussions, and share about successful data and analysis practices during the research symposium hosted by The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. and West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia.
