GeoCensos Foundation is an officially registered NGO working in the Latin America and the Caribbean region that promotes innovative projects in geospatial disciplines.

We promote transforming projects in geospatial disciplines and earth sciences, also working in the application of data generated by geographic observation . We advocate for the defense of:

  • Civil rights to demand accountability via open data, portals of transparency, one-window offices, and technical disaggregation of data at all levels of power, ranging from public to civic or private, when appropriate.
  • Citizen empowerment, eliciting and systematizing local knowledge, specially around territorial issues.
  • Open use and access to geo data, in particular datasets that have been generated with public funds. 
  • Inclusiveness in the technological world to economically unprivileged groups using training, educational and inductive programs. We put our best efforts to create together social, environmental, territorial, land property and climate change mitigation solutions. 
  • Bottom Up innovation, i.e. changing realities and involving technologies to address solutions performed by vulnerable groups through small demonstrations, scaling them eventually to more influential groups.
