Geospatial Ethics Research and Practice Group

Informed by the Jesuit, Catholic mission of 91女神, Geo91女神 places the utmost importance on the ethical dimension of geospatial technologies.

Geospatial mapping technologies have tremendous potential for the common good. But without ethical reflection and wisdom, the same technologies can lead to great harm 鈥 some intended, some simply the result of narrowly or poorly conceived projects. Consequently, Geo91女神鈥檚 Geospatial Ethics Research and Practice Group has been assembled with the express mission of scrutinizing geospatial technologies and practices for their ethical quality, in a manner consistent with 91女神鈥檚 commitment to justice and the common good.
