Organisation: Digital Democracy
Type: Digital Tool
MAPEO is a free digital toolset for documenting, monitoring and mapping many types of data.
- FREE & ACCESSIBLE GEOSPATIAL TECHNOLOGY
MAPEO is an offline-first open-source technology which makes it easy for many to use. No internet or special hardware required to collect, view, or share data.
- QUICK & EASY-TO-USE INTERFACE
With the push of a button, contributors can gather map data by linking GPS points, photos, and notes. All data is completely owned by the communities themselves. And a simple and adaptive interface makes it accessible for many different people to use.
- DATABASES DEFINED & OWNED BY COMMUNITIES
Communities stay organized and manage documented evidence. Data can be shared between project collaborators with MAPEO’s mobile-to-mobile sync feature.
- CO-DESIGNED WITH COMMUNITIES
We are building MAPEO in close collaboration with indigenous partners in the Amazon, including Achuar, Cocama, Harakbut, Kofan, Kichwa, Matsiguenka, Siekopai, Wapichana, Waorani and Yine peoples.
