Mapping for Change
« on: 27 January 2016, 18:57:21 »
Mapping for Change (a wholly owned subsidiary of UCL - University College London) works with groups and organisations who want to understand, improve and produce information about the places that matter to them. They offer a range of participatory mapping services to voluntary and community groups, business organisations and government bodies.

On their website they say that "Mapping for Change see maps as tools which can facilitate dialogue, analysis and action. Our services are grounded in over 15 years’ experience in participatory mapping and community engagement. We have used maps to support community groups, commercial organisations, public sector and government initiatives, and academic research."

"A flexible and stylish participatory mapping platform, Community Maps (their online mapping tool) can visualise data, compare information, and encourage conversation about the places which matter. Community Maps can facilitate dialogue and collaboration across sectors, within organisations, or amongst communities. Designed using the latest web development technologies, Community Maps offers a fast, reliable and intuitive interface."

Among other things they say that their platform can help groups to document local history.
