MapAction: Information that Saves Lives

“MapAction delivers information that saves lives and livelihoods. When disasters strike, coordinating relief efforts hinges on rapid transfer of information. MapAction delivers that vital situation information in the form of maps, created and distributed in the field. By conveying a “common operational picture”, our maps make a crucial difference in delivering humanitarian aid to the right place to relieve suffering.

“MapAction is unique. We are the only non-governmental organisation (NGO) with a substantial track record in mapping for disaster emergencies. From our bases in the UK, Germany and the Caribbean region, we can deploy a fully trained and equipped mapping team anywhere in the world. They can be on their way in hours.”
