One of the most exciting projects that I have encountered in México is Civics.es, a social mapping initiative that began in Spain. This initiative is now working in México and Colombia. A brief video introduction to their work in Guadalajara is here.
Javier (at right in the photo) is one of the founders of this initiative in Spain, and his presentation on the origins of social mapping within the context of recent Spanish history is riveting! We are discussing ways to work together in the future.
