We are a collaborative group of students and faculty focused on analyzing spatial data in ways that empower communities, shape understanding of important issues, and have an impact on public policy. We do so by engaging in collaborative research with groups outside the university and creating public conversations on emerging techniques and trends in cartography and spatial analysis. The lab is housed within the Department of Geography at the University of Georgia. We also have ties to the Housing and Demographic Research Center and the Center for Community Design & Preservation at UGA.

Our lab has a new website! Visit communitymappinglab.org to learn more about the work we do!
