Remote indigenous communities needed mapping tools to defend their ancestral lands. As lead UX researcher and designer for Digital Democracy, Puicón-Pérez conducted 3 contextual inquiries, 3 heuristic analyses, and interviewed 3 mapping SMEs to begin shaping a digital mapping toolset.
Research insights informed the core design system and guidelines for Mapeo — an intuitive and accessible co-mapping platform designed for secure collaboration. Features included geocaching annotated observations, securing data offline, and sharing securely.
Since launching in 2018, over 30 frontline communities used Mapeo to create maps for their defense.
Mapeo is available through the Google Play Store.
