More community mapping and GIS is being used to help stabilize life in the West Bank.  JumpStart International is starting their pilot program of mapping streeets, and various important businesses and establishments in the West Bank as way to encourage economic development in the area.  The organization is training residents from the West Bank with GIS technical skills and techniques so that they may be able to actively manage the sight.  While the site will be aimed for the use by the public, both the private and public sector will be able to access and benefit from the site.  JumpStart International hopes that this project will prove to be successful and bring these projects to other less-developed areas of the world.
