General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Deadline Nears

As you may know the GDPR is a new European Union (EU) regulation designed to streamline the rules around privacy and data security. The regulation has two primary goals:

Give citizens more control over their information including the Right to be Forgotten; and
Simplify the regulations targeting businesses (including nonprofits).

In the January Fíonta Note, we talked about what your organization should be doing to prepare. If you find that you are in need of help creating a roadmap, reviewing systems and records, or implementing solutions, we are here for you. We have developed an assessment package for nonprofits, associations, and foundations which covers data management and governance and culminates in a compliance recommendation plan.

Geo-location, Wanderlust, and Walking

What's Nearby geo-mapping toolWant to discover what landscapes are within a 10-minute walk from where you’re presently standing? The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s (TCLF), What’s Nearby function has been updated with new information and improved graphics to make finding cultural landscapes even easier.

Fíonta and TCLF worked together to substantively upgrade the What’s Nearby feature to provide a much richer and customizable user experience. Users can choose to see local landscapes that are within 2, 10, or 50 miles of a given location (with the sites presented in a color-coded display) or they can customize the search by inputting the mileage of their choosing. The custom distance option gives the user the ability to tailor the search results to their particular location. A pop-up image of the selected landscape gives a preview of the site and then maps the best route to reach it.

Learn more about What’s Nearby and the underlying mapping technology or contact us to talk about ways your organization could be displaying geographic data.
