Mapathon With Missing Maps

Please join Community Engagement & Leadership for a Mapathon with Missing Maps! This is an interactive virtual volunteer project.

Mapathons are an engaging and cutting-edge opportunity designed to help deepen a  volunteers’ relationship with the Missing Maps project. Missing Maps is a humanitarian project that maps parts of the world that are vulnerable to natural disasters, conflicts, and disease epidemics. The objective of a Mapathon is to engage volunteers to digitally map the most vulnerable places in the developing world so that local and international NGOs can use these comprehensive maps and data to better respond to crises affecting these areas. 

During the Mapathon, volunteers will learn how to trace satellite imagery into OpenStreetMap (OSM), a free and open map of the entire world.  No experience required! 

Agenda:

  • Welcome
  • Overview of Missing Maps
  • How does mapping make an impact?
  • Register and learn how to map
  • Practice mapping on your own
  • Reflection & Wrap-up

This service project is part of Beyond Earth Day Week.
