Working with the community is a cost-effective approach that not only provides insights

that are unattainable from traditional survey methods but also strengthens communities

through capacity building workshops.



Mapathons are community mapping projects that organize around a large community problem and often include prizes and other gamification elements to motivate participation. This type of crowdsourcing project can be an efficient way to collect massive amounts of data quickly across a large region.
