Part of the concept of counter-mapping, the Map Kibera Project was born with the objective of supporting the development of the informal settlement of Kibera, Kenya, through the collection, analysis and distribution of detailed geo-referenced data relative to its structures and population. To this end, the project has developed a methodology tied to the use of geographical information technologies, which allow the production of multi-dimensional knowledge of the observed situation in a more comprehensible form that can also be shared. In addition to supplying a new estimate of the resident population in the settlement, spatial analysis of the data collected in a pilot area has revealed limits and risks on the structural and infrastructural levels, demographic configurations and socio-economic dynamics, creating the bases for planning and managing development programs.
