Data-driven decision making

Enabling more effective humanitarian and development decisions

When maps fail to account for every person, progress can’t be achieved. Too many people still remain invisible to the governments and humanitarian and development organisations that can provide the public with vital resources. Communities that are absent from maps often miss out on much needed support. And when other map-based data, such as infrastructure and boundaries, are missing or incorrect, development efforts are also impeded.
