Mapping Team

Using geographic information systems (GIS) technology, team members are given a variety of opportunities for leadership development, learning marketable skills and opportunities to present their work on a professional level.

The US Department of Labor has identified nanotechnology, biotechnology and geographic information systems (GIS) as the top 3 emerging fields.
Marketable skills in GIS prepare you for an employable future.
Team Members gain:
Ø Interviewing and presentation experience
Ø Skills in technologies that are in high demand
Ø The ability to advocate for a healthier community
Teams meet 2 to 4 times per month depending on the project and will have tasks outside of scheduled meeting times. Some, but not all, projects offer a stipend.
Previous projects have addressed gang tagging, healthy food options, physical activity resources, crosswalks, youth service providers, sporting goods, help for orphans, transportation issues, and more!
Team members have presented at professional conferences in NC, CA, OR and AZ, and internationally in Dominican Republic, Panama and Chile.
