Group Description


The Forum is where it all happens: MadMappers' meeting point to exchange techniques and seek advice. If you are a beginner it is the place to start, if you are an expert professional you will be amazed how much expertise and passion is out there!

Our motto is "African GIS data accessible to all".
Easy access to GIS data and tools is essential for development.
On the African continent, politicians constantly search for ways to stimulate development but too often overlook the need for maps. Common perception is that development will create resources needed for compiling good maps. The opposite is in fact true: good, easily accessible maps are the foundations of development.

"African GIS data accessible to all". Accessible in the sense that data must be both reasonable in cost and suitable for use in software we can afford. Sustainable Development cannot be based on cracks and illegal software! MadMappers intends to facilitate the free flow of African GIS data and know-how so that development can finally take place.

If you have created ANY African map please contact us. If it is unfinished we will help you finish it. It will be added on www.MadMappers.com website giving you full credit for your work.

There is an enormous amount of raw data on the web which requires added processing before being practically useful. Whenever you identify raw data feel free to contact us: we will advise and assist you in data processing so that a new improved MM mapset can be produced.Whenever you contribute to MadMappers, either with data, data processing or volunteer work you will be credited in MadBucks! You will be able to redeem your MadBucks against data from the MadMappers' website.
