Details

The Missing Maps project aim is to map the most vulnerable places in the developing world in order to be able to better respond to crises affecting these areas. For more information please refer to this link ( http://www.missingmaps.org/ ) or this video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toQEuT5TNqg ).

We will be meeting and learning how to map to support humanitarian organizations' field work and disaster response. It is all about learning, but that needs people at every experience level. So if you know nothing about humanitarian mapping or if you have been an OSM mapper from the beginning, we need you!

During this Mapathon we will map in Swaziland as part of an international effort to help eliminating malaria from their country.

Please bring a laptop (and a mouse if you have one)
