About Us

The EA Congress is a two-day summit designed to bring together stakeholders in the Amazon mapping domain. Over the course of two days, attendees will engage in discussions about the current state of Amazon mapping and explore ways to conduct an initial EA Amazon scan. Workshops and panel sessions will be held to discuss topics related to data collection, mapping tools and techniques, analysis and interpretation, and making sense of the variety of data sources. Additionally, there will be opportunities to network with other attendees and strengthen collaborations among stakeholders. Through this event, attendees will gain a better understanding of the importance of EA Amazon mapping and will be better positioned to act as stewards of the world’s largest ecosystem.
