This platform was financially supported by the German government (Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development - BMZ), and facilitated by GIZ, the German Development Agency. Thanks to our sponsors at the Fab Foundation and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for sponsoring our early mapping efforts. This effort is led by the Ananse Group and Open Movement, and our team includes representatives from Maker Media,, the Fab Lab network, TheMakerMap, and Global Innovation Gathering. Thank you also to our amazing mapping partners at Makery, Bongo Hive, Superhero Spaces, the World Bank Group, Instructables, and Hacedores who did much of the mapping ground work.
