Volunteer With Us

Volunteers are needed to digitize new roads in the Asia-Pacific


Volunteer with our team

The project:

Limiting Environmental Impacts While Optimizing Benefits of Rapid Global Infrastructure Expansion

We are seeking volunteers to assist us in digitizing (tracing) new road infrastructure and classifying road attributes in Google Earth. You can do this from home with a computer and internet connection by downloading the free Google Earth application and utilizing spatial data sets that we will provide.

Join our researchers in mapping all roads in the tropics and developing nations to help guide future development towards sustainable outcomes!
