OUR STORY.

Road map to geospatial capacity building

MAPPING the future

At the Indigenous Mapping Workshop, we support geospatial capacity building that generates facilities, programs, and resources to promote Indigenous Peoples’ ability to collect, analyze, and visualize community-based geospatial information. The Indigenous Mapping Workshop and its strategic partners are dedicated to the development and advancement of culturally appropriate and inclusive geospatial technologies for Indigenous leadership, agencies, and communities to support Indigenous rights and interests.

Our work focuses on the generation and dissemination of decolonized resources in Geographical Information Sciences and Satellite Remote Sensing, their integration and application, and the preservation and promotion of Indigenous land stewardship practices.

PLANNING COMMITTEE

The Indigenous Mapping Workshop is composed of GIS, capacity building, education specialists, and Indigenous community partners. The Planning Committee is responsible for all levels of event logistics, management, and curriculum development.
