Ms. Hagen, based in Washington DC, is the Director of Map Kibera Trust and GroundTruth Initiative.  Ms. Hagen will use this opportunity to bring together people who are interested in issues of access, power, economics and equity in geographic information. She will create and publish guidelines around ethics of mapping, with a focus on global communities who traditionally have had less access to maps and mapping tools. She will include discussions with a variety of people living in and working with digital mapping in low income countries, informal settlements, remote rural areas, refugee camps, and others often left out of the conversation around sustainable access to and use of geographic data and tools.
