The Mapleton-Fall Creek Mapping Project, which started in 2015, uses Mappler to display community data on access to food, public art, greenspaces, senior citizen amenities, and physical activity areas. The anthropology department at IUPUI, the Mapleton-Fall Creek Develop Corporation, and the Mid-North Quality of Life Action Team joined forces to use Mappler technology to map out their area to encourage grassroots solutions to improve community health.
Students from from IUPUI collected data on community needs which was transferred into a data map using Mappler. The maps which can be accessed on a computer or phone, can now be used as a community resource and a digital platform to create change.
