What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in humanitarian and crisis mapping or/and OpenStreetMap entusiast. We get together with a focus on creating online maps on OpenStreetMap for humanitarian organizations doing field work in the world's most vulnerable places. There is no greater connection to supporting humanitarian work remotely than mapping. Our maps are used by MSF, Red Cross, UN/EC/EU organizations, local governments and NGOs around the world.

If you like to know how this works, visit our monthly Mapathon. We are 5minutes from Hauptbahnhof Zürich.

Everyone is welcome! It is all about learning and mapping together. So if you know nothing about mapping or if you have been an OpenStreetMap mapper from the beginning, we need you! All you need is to bring along a laptop. It's as simple as that.
