Maps for Advocacy

How can advocacy groups highlight complex issues such as human rights abuses, protest marches and vanishing forests?Thankfully there are techniques tools now available to powerfully represent these issues as maps.

Tactical Tech recognised the power of maps in projects such as the Darfur Project and mapping done by ALTSEAN-Burma, and produced our Maps for Advocacy booklet as an introduction to geographical mapping techniques. 

The booklet demystifies the step-by-step process of producing and sharing maps, using data sources like Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, Socialight and others.
