Top-Down Planning, Bottom-Up Community Involvement: Work synchronously from the top to reveal opportunities and facilitate high-impact changes with communities on the ground.

Transference: Internal reapplication of basic models and pre-assembled frameworks and theoretical reapplication of frameworks by other organizations. Spatial Data Infrastructure reduces redundancy and increases simple geospatial data transference among Catholic communities.
Accessibility: Accessible project operations, accessible data analyses, and simple educational materials that make landscape ecology, conservation, and geodesign approachable for the general public.
We offer our services to nonprofit and for-profit organizations, as well as private clients and governmental entities.
GoodLands curates the largest geodatabase of Catholic information, has up-to-date geospatial information about the global Catholic community, and has a unique understanding of the various ways it operates. We are committed to helping Catholic organizations increase their location understanding through map making and re-inspiring a rich tradition of cartography in the Church.
For research centers, faith-based organizations, NGOs, and governments we offer a collaborative fundraising service. We will work with your team to seek additional financial support you may need to cover the costs of map making. Time commitments, additional overhead and conditions are clearly delegated for both parties during an initial assessment session.
