Free For All – AidData.org

When I started my adventure called grad school, I was actually a human geography major with a focus on African development. As such, my Free for All for this month is a shout out to the world of development. The folks at AidData.org seem to be obsessed with mapping development projects and I applaud their efforts as maps are the best! On their website, you will find a plethora of data, online maps, APIs and much more – in fact, it seemed the more I explored their website, the more I found.

Here are a few highlight of AidData.org website, I suggest you explore a bit more to find what might interest you:

food_security_globalAn example of a map you can make with AidData.org, this one shows global food security statistics.

As a quick heads up, do not add in the “www.” if you type in your own URL as it will fail!

Until my next edition of the Free For All, happy hunting for free geospatial goodies!
