Last year, the COVID-19 crisis seemed to have monopolised all the attention, even in the realm of mapping and data visualisation. We were all exposed to countless maps, dashboards and graphs depicting the evolution of the pandemic. Nevertheless, a variety of disasters, needing a response, still occurred.
Communities in distress can count on a group of volunteers, named GISCorps, who offer their GIS skills on a mission-based deployment.
GISCorps have published a story map where they review the remarkable work they did in 2020. Head to URISA’s GISCorps 2020: The Year in Review for a glimpse at all their mapping related missions and be inspired.
