The Youth Climate Report GIS Map

Data Delivery Systems using GIS Maps is an innovative way to inform and educate the world about global climate change and The Youth Climate Report GIS Map has provided an excellent platform for ‘Speaking Youth to Power”.

Geospatial information shared Data Delivery Systems using GIS Maps is a great way to communicate information using statistics, photographs, videos, and more. Take, for example, Mark Terry’s Youth Climate Report published in conjunction with the United Nations Framework on Climate Change via a GIS map. This project focuses on the subjects of climate change, pollution solutions, water management, and inspiration as to the technology and innovations stemming from these areas, as well as the challenges. Every new pin plotted on the map helps develop this new form of interactive spatial and temporal documentary platform. It will continue to grow and be a source for comparative analysis as well as an excellent informational tool for both the world and UN policymakers regarding climate change and managing the earth.

This GIS map project, which was started in 2015, is open to participants from every continent. Submitted videos are juried by members of the UNFCC and Mark Terry to make sure they are of suitable quality and meet one of the two subjects that change each year. If you are interested in participating in next year’s competition, just look at some of the entries to get a feel for what innovative offerings the students are producing for this evolving GIS map. The Youth Climate Report GIS Map project was honoured with a 2020 Sustainable Development Goals Award for its ability to provide a platform for youth to share their view. Read more.
