You can make your own GIS map to share locations and vital data regarding your cause or organization. Start building a map to represent relevant data just as the fine examples below did. Many groups employ Google Earth, Google Earth EngineGoogle Tour Builder, and Google Street View to zoom in and out on areas to tell the story and complete the visual picture. This is particularly useful when documented land and water changes.

 Google Earth Outreach MapsLiving Oceans create several maps designed to teach the public about issues, protect and manage marine life, and more.

Jane Goodall and like-minded people are using Google Open Source to help track the number and save the remaining chimpanzees in Africa. See more on their work. Another fine example is Mapping forests to Save Sumatra – WWF – Eyes on the Forest.
