New online interactive map helps Indigenous peoples and communities assert land rights

LandMark is a new online mapping platform that provides critical information on the collective land and natural resource rights of Indigenous Peoples and local communities around the world. The interactive, global map is designed to increase the visibility of indigenous and community lands, act as a tool for asserting customary and indigenous territories, and present crucial information on the state of land rights.
