Trainers: Mar Cartró and Emilie Reiser from Digital Democracy
Mapeo is a free, open-source and easy-to-use digital toolset for documenting, monitoring and mapping many types of data. It has been created with and for our partner communities in the Amazon, who, along with other communities around the world, continue to improve the toolset and use it to defend their rights and territory. In this interactive workshop, we will provide examples of how Mapeo is being used by communities to monitor threats and impacts to their lands, and go through some of the key features that make Mapeo a powerful tool for monitoring, with a special emphasis on the Mapeo Mobile app. Participants are encouraged to install Mapeo Mobile in their smartphones and try out!
