Justin has had a long career of more than 30 years in mapping technology, all over the world and successfully co-founded a commercial mapping company in the UK. He is now promoting and expanding drone surveys across Africa.
Today his role at GMA is creating and overseeing the production of interactive maps and smartphone data collection solutions that help direct aid, while still working as a consultant in Malawi. During the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, a series of maps were created that tracked cases and front-line activities but also where local resources could, and still can, be used to help.
A series of other maps have since been created to address youth unemployment, violence, crime, mental illness, air pollution, wildlife conservation and climate change amongst others.
