In late 2020, leaders at the Mexico National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI) engaged with the IDEAMAPS Network to understand how they might operationalise an IDEAMAPS approach to map deprived urban areas within Mexico's cities. INEGI maintains a trove of detailed, open access government data across sectors and lead in the development of new statistical and geographic methods to generated ever-more relevant open-access information for all types of local decision-makers.

With the guidance of INEGI Vice President, Paloma Merodio, and a team of INEGI advisors and data analysts - Andrea Ramírez, Jimena Juárez, and Céline Jacquin - the IDEAMAPS Network documented our technical processes (thus far) for engaging with key stakeholders, compiling and processing data, and iteratively testing models of urban deprivation. The IDEAMAPS approach will continue to evolve and be refined as the IDEAMAPS Network expands and technologies and data (flows) develop, however, this document provides a good starting point for any local or national government team wishing to operationalise the IDEAMAPS approach within their own agency.
