MapAction’s work depends on a group of skilled and dedicated volunteers, supported by our staff and trustees. In their day jobs, these volunteers work in a range of fields from Antarctic surveying to zoological research.


All volunteers are invited to join MapAction as part of a team ready to be deployed at very short notice anywhere in the world, with a select few providing specific technical capacity (system administration and software development).

Team members undertake emergency and planned missions worldwide, without fee. Although mainly based in the UK, we have small sections in the Caribbean region and in Germany.

Volunteers are carefully selected and join with strong skills using GIS software, but MapAction gives them all the additional knowledge and skills they need to function effectively in a humanitarian emergency.
