Summer of Maps

Summer of Maps is a three-month long fellowship giving student GIS analysts the opportunity to perform geospatial data analysis for local and national nonprofit organizations.

"Azavea helped us to visualize our programs impact in the community. With these tools in hand, our organization can continue to grow, secure funding and continue to provide legal services to low income people with disabilities in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties."

— Elizabeth Oquendo, Legal Clinic for the Disabled, 2015 Summer of Maps Organization

How does it work?

We match nonprofit organizations that have spatial analysis needs with top geospatial data analytics students to implement projects over a three-month period during the summer. Fellows get paid while expanding their skills in a professional environment and nonprofits receive Geospatial Data Analytics Services Grants that support their mission.
