Mapping Our Environment

Heather Leson | Ushahidi | April 22, 2013

At the Space Apps Challenge this past weekend, Ron Garan of Fragile Oasis talked about his experiences as an astronaut. He gave the call to action for all of us to think about how we can use technology to explore space and protect our planet, our solar system.

On Earth Day, we’d like to give a shout out to everyone who is using maps to tell stories and connect people to actions. These folks are all little social tech startups or volunteers trying to give voice to our planet and communities. Often, they need your support to amplify their missions.
