During Phase 1 we carefully curated what is likely the largest geodatabase of Catholic information in the world. Our maps were displayed in Casina Pio IV at the Vatican and our mapping has received expressions of interest from various groups in the Roman Curia, from Catholic NGOs, and from multi-national organizations around the world. We have laid the technical foundation and established the social connections needed to move our efforts forward, with sufficient financial support, we can build the front-end of our technology to meet existing demand for these services and connect even more platform partners to each other to accomplish measurable progress in improving the state of the planet and prosperity around the world.


We have laid the foundation for the Catholic Geography System with a world-class team of collaborators that includes systems architects and engineers who have contributed to the development of major spatial data infrastructures (SDI), including the City of Los Angeles’ GeoHub, the European Union’s INSPIRE SDI, and the GeoSUR SDI for the Latin American Development Bank. During our Phase 1 development we established a partnership with Esri, the global leader in geospatial technology, to launch the Catholic Geographic System. As part of this effort, we discussed our work with leadership in the Holy See and received approval to map ecclesiastical jurisdictions globally.  To date, we have developed the first comprehensive global maps of Catholic Latin-rite ecclesiastical jurisdictions in history.
