Hanging out in cool cafÃ©â€™s has its perks. Emily Miller overheard AIDGers and thought what we were doing was pretty cool. So she offered to give us a hand with a specific projectâ€”mapping out Xela on Google Earth. We started a â€œmaterials mappingâ€ project to help incoming interns find materials, and know how much they cost, the shopâ€™s phone number and address, and any other notes. Weâ€™d also like to put on bus routes, hospitals, restaurants, etc, and make all the information available on our website.
A bit on Emily:
