MAPOLOGIE

THE ART OF MAPPING DATA

What we do

We train humanitarian and development professionals to  find and use open-source geo-tagged data and using QGIS (a free and open-source software) create informative custom maps.

WHY MAPS

Maps show what is happening where. Representing information visually makes it manageable. We take multiple databases, harmonise them, and present them so you can see the trends that matter.

HOW WE TEACH 

We show you where to find public geo data collected through OpenStreetMap. Then, we show you to import this data, manipulate it and export it to make a custom map. 

WHY LIVE IS BETTER

Our classes are with a real, live human. It’s a steep learning curve alone. Our live, collaborative classes ensure that you learn to map with QGIS, have fun and apply your learning to real life.

IT’S EASIER THAN YOU THINK

Yes, mapping is a skill to learn but anyone can learn it! You’ll leave class feeling empowered to make your maps and wondering why you didn’t try this sooner.

What sets us apart

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

We know the humanitarian sector and the
development sector. We also know maps. We
bring these two skill set together to highlight the
information that’s important to you.

We avoid jargon, long acronyms and complexifying information that could be simple. Our philiosophy is to simplify and this comes through in our training and deliverables. 

PROFESSIONAL AND FLEXIBLE

Detail oriented and professional, we create
projects with you and stick to our timeline. But,
we’re also flexible in adapting to changing
contexts and will stick with you from start to
finish.

SAFE AND SECURE

We understand that data is sensitive. That’s why
when we use your data, we adhere to GDPR
regulations.
