Description

Geographic information systems (GIS) and online mapping applications continue to become more powerful and easier to use every year.  Nonprofit and community organizations around the globe are harnessing these tools to mobilize supporters and advocates, to tell their stories and the stories of their constituents, and to share knowledge with people, organizations, and communities everywhere. What are the primary uses for mapping? What are the tools and technologies used in nonprofit mapping (Google and others)? We’ll look at inspiring examples in Vermont and beyond. Today's presenters are Michael Gaito , Spencer Group mgaito@spencergroupinc.com,  John Hawkins john.hawkins@fdnmap.org, Mapping Philanthropy and Geoff Wyman, CCTV.

This is the final installment of Google for Nonprofits Workshops co-sponsored with United Way of Vermont, Common Good Vermont, and Google Community Affairs. Live Webcast at www.cctv.org

Part of the continuing series of Media Maven Lunches.
