A start-up global venture that is mapping the world of natural resource, environment, and agricultural law.
Introduction
Legal Atlas is a new initiative that combines the power of cloud-based data management, GIS-applications, and scientific and legal information to study/map the use of law as a management tool for the world’s environment, agricultural, energy, and natural resources. 

Legal Atlas aims to contribute to our ability to better manage resources and foster economic development while at the same time improving environmental sustainability and reducing social conflict. The initiative focuses on the operational aspects of public policy: the laws and regulations that bring them to life. Building on the efforts of numerous organizations and in partnership with leading universities and expert institutions, Legal Atlas is focused on this missing piece of the puzzle, the creation of a one-stop window that compiles and monitors legal frameworks, conducts comparative analyses to establish legal best practices, and assesses national legal frameworks and their ability to support (or hinder) best practices in managing resources locally and on a global scale. 

Whether the subject is energy, urban planning, protected area management, vehicle emissions standards, or other, Legal Atlas is developing a knowledge platform that will provide analytical, computational, and visual tools to a growing, worldwide community of experts, policy makers and legal drafters, allowing them to directly participate in a virtual center that provides lay descriptions for all legal frameworks, legal best practices articles, specialized maps illustrating the physical footprint of laws, and red flags identifying corruptive and failed practices.

This simulation gives an eerily omniscient vantage on the world as it fills.

Legal Atlas is excited to have Mary Anderson join our team of researchers! Mary is from Salt Lake City, Utah and currently a Senior studying International Business, Business Management, and Arabic at the University of Montana. 

Mary is looking specifically at human trafficking, starting with creating a global compilation of laws. Her research will be a major contribution to efforts around the world to improve laws and enforcement activities aimed at stopping this trade.

In her free time, she enjoys skiing, running, and photography.

A hearty welcome from all us!

Feature article about how Legal Atlas started, out today in the Kaimin newspaper - http://www.montanakaimin.com/features/article_60403f5e-5348-11e3-b3d7-001a4bcf6878.html
In the winter of 2010 in a French restaurant in Kabul, Afghanistan, Jim Wingard sat down with Maria Pascual. They faced the same problem and wanted a solution.

Applying to the Shuttleworth Foundation Fellowship program and needed to prepare a video to accompany the application. Whether or not successful, still curious what people think about the Legal Atlas idea as talked about in this video. http://youtu.be/PTQbcA3h15A. If you have a moment, your feedback and questions are sincerely welcomed.
