Azavea is back with its Summer of Maps.
The B Corp hosts a handful of paid interns every summer who take on spatial analysis projects on behalf of an assortment of U.S. nonprofits, turning raw data into digestible graphics.
“An ideal project should propose challenging, interesting data analysis questions and have a clear set of requested deliverables that will support the nonprofit’s mission,” former Azavea Project Manager Sarah Cordivano told us in 2016. “Proposed projects that include data digitization or software development are outside the scope of the program.”
Last year, The Food Trust got mapping help from Temple University fellow Carlos Bonilla to create an “index to help measure program impact and target programming.”
“He helped actualize a project that had kind of been sitting on the back burner for a while that we all really wanted to do, but didn’t have the capacity or the expertise to do,” a Food Trust employee said in the below video. “We have 125 people working at our organization, and now that tool is in all of their hands.”
