Secondary Cities, Office of The Geographer

Resiliency - Human Security - Emergency Preparedness


Secondary Cities is a field-based initiative of the Office of the Geographer to map for Resiliency, Human Security, and Emergency Preparedness.

We build partnerships to create geospatial capacity, enhance understanding through data and mapping, and enable science-based decision making.



Our partners build relationships in the field working with embassy and local government officials, universities, and non-governmental organizations.

Secondary City project are freely available via the Secondary Cities GeoNode
