Bridges To Prosperity: Fika Map
Removing barriers to progress
Rural communities experience outsized negative effects when the lack of basic infrastructure means they can’t reach important destinations. We’ve developed Fika Map, a suite of remote analysis tools, to locate where access is most beneficial via the power of machine learning. The result? More scalable, impactful rural access solutions around the world.
A machine learning model processes satellite imagery and training data from multi-location, full coverage, field-based needs assessments to predict obstacles that may be difficult or impossible for rural residents to cross.
Rapid impact assessment tools help stakeholders at all levels understand the scope of transportation challenges faced by rural populations and the opportunity cost of not addressing those problems.
Key data and remote methods help determine the most cost-effective, location-appropriate, and durable solutions to addressing transportation barriers on a regional or national scale.
