It’s looking for a college student to help. It’s one of 16 potential projects that Azavea‘s Summer of Maps fellows can tackle.  The paid fellowship pairs college students with organizations looking for mapping analysis. It’s helped at least one organization get $1 million in grants.

Other projects include mapping Philly building’s energy efficiency for the Energy Efficient Buildings Hub and doing a spatial analysis of community wireless networks in European cities for the New America Foundation.

Azavea will host three students this year, said Sarah Cordivano, the Azavea staffer who runs the program.
