Designing For Communities

Mapeo is a offline-first mapping platform from Digital Democracy (see below). I joined Digital Democracy in September 2017 to lead user experience and interface design across Mapeo’s platform.

Building from Digital Democracy’s established relationships with indigenous partners in the Amazon, Mapeo helps communities worldwide monitor their territories and defend their rights. The first version of Mapeo makes it easy for communities to gather qualitative and quantitative mapping data while helping them stay organized and manage their own data sharing.
