Geospatial Revolution Project Logo
The Geospatial Revolution Project explores the world of digital mapping and how it is changing the way we think, behave, and interact.

We use geospatial technology to fight climate change, track disease and promote democracy. Understanding the technology, its applications and the issues it raises around privacy and security is critical to maintaining an informed citizenry.
