Description: How are maps & geospatial imagery being used by and for frontline communities to defend their rights? What does it take to design tools that are truly useful for the world’s most vulnerable populations? What are the ethical considerations when frontline communities are mapping sensitive information? How do we ensure that they are able to manage their own geospatial information, and manage it on their own terms? How can maps protect sacred sites & biodiverse areas, rather than lay the path for their destruction?
