Taking Tools to People for Offline Mapping

Accurate maps play a critical role in understanding communities, particularly for populations at risk of natural disasters and health emergencies. Dan Joseph and colleagues explain how the American Red Cross has mobilised thousands of volunteers to help map vulnerable communities around the world. Much of the Global North has been mapped with incredible detail and is accessible through the smartphones in our pockets. This is not the reality for billions of people around the globe, however. Families and individuals often do not exist to decisionmakers because their communities do not exist on maps. Without maps, disaster responders often cannot access... (read more)

The Mystery of Russia’s Cold War Mapping

During the cold war period, the Soviet Union created highly detailed mapping of the UK, often including features omitted from contemporary large scale OS mapping. But why did they do it? This enigmatic mapping remains a useful resource in tracing the history of sites prior to redevelopment. Martyn Lufkin, data team leader at Landmark Information explains. As every GIS professional will confirm, the basis of any successful project is founded on the quality of the mapping data used. As a nation, we are fortunate to have access to a huge repository of Ordnance Survey maps that range in detail, complexity... (read more)
