YouthMappers at Queen Mary

3 October 2018

A chapter of YouthMappers – an international network of more than 5000 university student mappers in 120 campus chapters across 38 countries – has been set up at Queen Mary. It is being led by the Queen Mary Geography Society.

YouthMappers is a voluntary mapping initiative that uses open source mapping software to create maps in response to humanitarian crisis and need across the world. 

Professor Catherine Nash who helped set up the chapter said: ‘This is a very exciting and important initiative. We are one of three chapters in the UK, only the second geography department to have one and the first in London.’
