GIS Field Research in Peru

GIS Volunteers will be conducting site analyses throughout the Sacred Valley and high altitude communities nearby. Volunteers will be using mixed method research combining GIS data point collection with social science surveys in order to answer the question “what grows where?” Due to the varying effects of altitude and climate in the Andes, this information will help build a database of agricultural capacity in the region. We will be able to track ongoing changes, isolate and explore anomalies, and utilize community members as field researchers.
