Maps tell powerful stories about the communities and the world in which we live. Maps are a visualization tool, a way to help us transform columns of data into useful knowledge about the people and places around us.
The MapTogether project provides free map-related training and tools for community and nonprofit groups around the world. Our resources include software, data sets, online mapping services, documentation, and training resources. In addition, our geographers provide free in-person “community mapping clinics” in cities across the United States and Canada.
