What started as an effort to track kids in the community has turned into a massive system of information glued together by the mapping skills of UM-Flint staff and students.

Map Flint started in 2015 when local organizations teamed up with UM-Flint’s University Outreach and Geographic Information Systems Center to start compiling data that would offer a growing and comprehensive view of what’s happening in the city.
