Mapping for Change

Using geospatial technologies to achieve social and environmental sustainability

Mapping for Change (MfC) is a UCL social enterprise spin out that specialises in the use of geospatial technologies to achieve social and environmental sustainability, with a particular focus on individuals and communities from disadvantaged or marginalised groups. MfC work with information and data from a range of sources and apply the capabilities of geographical information systems to visualise complex issues to assess patterns of activities, action and needs. Our emphasis is on helping to increase participation in community life and supporting the integration of individuals from different groups and backgrounds with the view to improving health, wellbeing and culture for individuals and communities. This is centred on providing easily replicable data collection methodologies, low-tech inclusive approaches, interactive mapping tools and interface design, and knowledge creation processes.
