Stanford Social Innovation Review: Mapping Land Titles From the Sky
December 22, 2016 — Stanford Social Innovation Review highlights The Asia Foundation’s work using drone technology to improve land titling in the Philippines and quotes the Foundation’s Program Director, Economic Reform and Development Entrepreneurship Jaime Faustino:
Jaime Faustino proudly describes the scene: people huddled around a picnic table in Cordova, a small island municipality in the Philippines, drawing lines around their homes on a high-resolution map.

Meanwhile, The Asia Foundation is also using unmanned aerial vehicles to map the sprawling outskirts of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, to better understand how to extend municipal services out to the shantytowns.
