ABSTRACT

Capitalizing on web-based open geospatial technologies, YouthMappers seeks to cultivate a generation of young leaders to create resilient communities and  to define their world by mapping it. Uniting a global network of student-led chapters, now on 100 university campuses in 30 countries, we promote the creation and use of open data on open platforms in ways that directly address development challenges, both in the local community and around the world through remote collaborations. Mapping applications focus on a range of significant issues like food insecurity, public health, natural disasters, and peaceful development. The program supports university efforts to offer meaningful global learning experiences, build a socially engaged citizenry, enhance long-term scientific capacity around the world, and foster university student leadership. The program is supported by a grant from the United States Agency for International Development’s GeoCenter and co-founded by Texas Tech University, George Washington University and West Virginia University.   www.youthmappers.org
