GRI PhD Student David Garcia joins the American Association of Geographers initiative for COVID-19 pandemic global response

Within the AAG COVID-19 initiative, David is working with the Phillipines-based geospatial collective he founded, The Ministry of Mapping, to crowdsource the location, treatment capacity, and equipment needs of all health facilities there, while also working with a clinical psychologist to provide emotional support to the mappers themselves as they examine painfully difficult data.
