Welcome to the Los Angelos Unified School District Community Mapping website

Welcome to the Los Angeles Unified School District Community Mapping website!

LAUSD partnered with Vertices in using Mappler technology to incorporate interactive mapping for their students’ projects. LAUSD is committed in having their students be aware of their community. Community Mapping allows the students¬† to become active participants in their community. Public Participatory GIS (PPGIS) is the integration of web/mobile based tools into the data collection process by community members in order to encourage community involvement and investment. PPGIS can be used to shed light on issues that affect the entire community and can empower participants to address the issue by documenting data in the form of an interactive map.

Please explore our site to learn more about student initiatives to address concerns and map resources in Los Angeles!
