Geospatial data and technologies are increasingly used to address various social and environmental issues, such as disaster management, urban planning, public health, and climate change. However, creating effective geospatial solutions or initiatives requires not only technical skills, but also a deep understanding of the problem context, the needs and preferences of the stakeholders, and the potential impacts and implications of the proposed solution or initiative.

Mapa nga ba?: A design thinking workshop on creating effective geospatial solutions or initiatives aims to introduce the participants to the principles and practices of design thinking, a human-centered approach to problem-solving and innovation. The workshop will guide the participants through the five stages of design thinking: empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test. The participants will work in teams to apply design thinking methods and tools to a real-world geospatial challenge. The workshop will also provide the participants with an opportunity to share their insights and feedback with other teams and learn from their experiences.
