Organization Information

Mission Statement

GMA makes humanitarian maps for use by decision makers at all levels, bot before and after a disaster.

The maps help to:-

+ guide aid workers to the victims

+ guide victims to the aid

+ show the outside world a clearer idea of what is happening, which will help drive policy and action

GMA aims to empower local staff to do the mapping, wherever possible.


We are a group of individuals who have both humanitarian and geographic information systems skills.

Originally GMA created after a successful Fellowship at Stanford University in 2002/3. The Fellow (Rupert Douglas-Bate) and his team, built an electronic data collection system for use in post disaster mapping.

GMA was then registered as a 501(c)3 (not for profit or charity) in the USA on the 14th October 2004.

Since then it has successfully made maps and helped local people to make maps in three major crises: New Orleans post Katrina; Pakistan post earthquake; Indonesia post tsumani.
