Custom Mapping Service

If you don't see what you want below, GMI cartographers can custom design maps according to your specifications. Choose from 2D, 3D, animated maps and more. Provide your own data, use data from GMI's extensive databases or use a combination of both.

In addition to pre-designed GMI maps (available on Mission InfoBank), we provide a broad spectrum of custom mapping services for mission agencies, churches, Christian educational institutions, and individuals. We'll be glad to talk with you via phone or email about your mapping needs.


Global Ministry Mapping System

Geographic Information System (GIS) or computer mapping software enables users to visualize their world. GIS technology can be a powerful tool for the analysis, planning, management, and mobilization of Christian ministry. The GMMS Community website supports a global network of Christian ministry leaders who do their own computer mapping to help them learn, plan, coordinate, and communicate their work.

Wondering how computer mapping can support your ministry? This is the place to find information and interact with others.

World Language Mapping System

The World Language Mapping System (WLMS) consists of Geographic Information System (GIS) data mapping language locations. It is the result of over 20 years of collaborative work between Global Mapping International (GMI) and the Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL) to map the over 6,900 languages described in SIL's 16th edition Ethnologue. This data set, adapted to work with either NGA's public domain Digtital Chart of the World (VMAP Level 0) base map or GMI's companion Seamless Digital Chart of the World, is now available to the broader community of GIS users.

The World Language Mapping System is available to the Christian nonprofit community packaged as part of the Global Ministry Mapping System (see above).
