CEELAT launches its Mapping Lab

Seeing a need for better information to help in decision-making processes about issues affecting Colombia and Latin America, CEELAT launched its Mapping and Data Visualization Lab. We take advantage of the latest technology in geographic visualization to strengthen the formation of policies, strategies, and plans on the local, national, and regional levels.

The Mapping Lab works with local and international organizations and companies in visualizing geographic data to create online interactive maps and maps for print. We also support the movement to liberate public data so that governments, organizations, businesses, and communities have greater access to information and these key decision-making tools. You can learn more about the Mapping Lab here

CEELAT partners with Living City Block - LCB to work on the development of LCB Santa Marta and LCB Latin America. 
 
LCB is an ini­tia­tive to help cities redesign and retro­fit inef­fi­cient and/or aging build­ings at the block scale and is com­mit­ted to work with com­mu­ni­ties to cre­ate resource hyper-efficient, eco­nom­i­cally sus­tain­able and health­ier and more liv­able neighborhoods. 
 
Aggregation of square footage at the block scale enables economies of scale for small-medium sized build­ings and lends the abil­ity to work with local gov­ern­ments to imple­ment not just trans­for­ma­tive energy solu­tions, but also to rework water, waste, health­ier streets and better community relations.
