DPRK iMMAP/WFP Project 2012-2014
It is good to know that you can do something to effect change in other countries and to assist even though you cannot be there in person. I’ve been doing GIS for over ten years and this was the first time I’ve done any volunteer work that was centered on using GIS to accomplish its task. I am hopeful to hear about the results from this work and how they are used to assist the people of North Korea.
I enjoy working with GIS because it has a way of leveling playing fields by disseminating information in easy to understand ways. In the future, I hope to do more volunteer work where I’m able to actually travel to the site and work with others.
