Impact Mapper is a monitoring and evaluation framework that targets impact measurement and tracking how funds were applied in social projects.
It was founded as a Public Benefit Corporation in March 2015. The platform has capabilities to track trends based on stories, and other text data formats, so they can be tracked along with other quantitative metrics.
ImpactMapper has several features, including designing surveys and integrating with analysis tools. It is possible to analyze text documents and extract contributions to the story of a given project.
There is a fellowship program which NGOs can apply to that grants free access to the survey license tool for one year.
