The iMap program from iUrban Teen offers students of color the opportunity to learn about Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Analysis, and Data Visualization. The power of GIS mapping will allow students to “visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to more deeply understand relationships, patterns, and trends” in various STEM subfields such as health, energy, transportation, and agriculture. Along with the value in collecting, organizing, analyzing, and displaying forms of geographically referenced information, iMap allows for communication and collaboration among professionals in different fields as well as communication between those professionals and the general public.
