value of cultural
We work in 15 cities across Southeast Asia, partnering with 100+ NGO’s, schools, developers, hotels, artists and wanderers. They use iDiscover maps for responsible tourism, heritage preservation, inclusive place making and promoting urban walkability, active ageing and cultural diversity.
The true value is more than just the maps; it’s the community-led mapping process. Our unique bottom-up approach instils local pride, builds bridges and creates social capital. Explore how we help our partners unlock community intelligence in their neighbourhoods:
