Frequently Asked Questions

What is MAPESS?

MAPESS-RAM is a collaborative platform, accessible to all, which geo-references all active third sector organisations in the Autonomous Region of Madeira.

Where is the information on the organisations taken from?

MAPESS-RAM is based on public information made available by organisations in different computerised media, which is then validated and/or completed by the registered OESS.

Is registration compulsory?

Registration is optional. Organisations that register have access to editing/modifying the content of the organisation in question. Content can become outdated over time, so it's a plus for interested organisations to update their profile.

Who is the MAPESS platform aimed at?

Is it possible to edit/delete a membership on the platform?

You need to register first in order to edit the contents of the entity you belong to. It is not possible to delete the entity.
