The WorldMap platform is being developed by the Center for Geographic Analysis (CGA) at Harvard to lower barriers for scholars who wish to explore, visualize, edit, collaborate with, and publish geospatial information.  WorldMap is Open Source software.

The system attempts to fill a growing niche between powerful desktop-bound mapping applications, and lightweight web map solutions with limited capacity.

If you find WorldMap data or technology useful in your research we would love to hear from you.  Understanding how the system is being used and where it needs improvement is critical as we evolve the system together.

WorldMap provides researchers with the ability to:

  • Upload large datasets and overlay them up with thousands of other layers
  • Create and edit maps and link map features to rich media content
  • Share edit or view access with small or large groups
  • Export data to standard formats
  • Make use of powerful online cartographic tools
  • Georeference paper maps online (http://warp.worldmap.harvard.edu)
  • Publish one’s data to the world or to just a few collaborators

Overview of WorldMap – a talk given to ABCD Harvard Technology group by Ben Lewis in November, 2011.

An Indian boy who lost his mother in 1986 has found her 25 years later from his new home in Tasmania – using satellite images.

Saroo was only five years old when he got lost. He was travelling with his older brother, working as a sweeper on India’s trains. “It was late at night. We got off the train, and I was so tired that I just took a seat at a train station, and I ended up falling asleep.”

That fateful nap would determine the rest of his life. “I thought my brother would come back and wake me up but when I awoke he was nowhere to be seen. I saw a train in front of me and thought he must be on that train. So I decided to get on it and hoped that I would meet my brother.”
