My journey mapping the uncharted world / Tawanda Kanhema / TED Salon Brightline Initiative

“Significant pieces of the globe are literally not on the map: they’re missing from the most widely used mapping platforms, like Google Street View, leaving communities neglected of vital services and humanitarian aid. In this globetrotting talk, photographer Tawanda Kanhema takes us along on his journey to map 3,000 miles of uncharted areas in Zimbabwe, Namibia and northern Canada — and shows how we can all contribute to building a more connected world.

This talk was presented at a TED Salon event given in partnership with Brightline Initiative. TED editors featured it among our selections on the home page. Read more about TED Salons.”
