University of Portsmouth will host a Missing Maps Mapathon on the 25th March,
What is it?
The aim of the Missing Maps Project is to map the most crisis-prone parts of the developing world. With your help we can directly improve the lives of some of the planet’s most vulnerable people.
What do I need?
Just a laptop, a mouse and enthusiasm (mouse isn't absolutely necessary but makes the mapping A LOT faster).
Do I need to be a mapping expert?
No, not at all! You do not need any previous experience. Training will be provided on the night
Missing Maps is an open collaboration founded by Humanitarian OSM Team (HOT), Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders (MSF), American Red Cross and the British Red Cross to map the most vulnerable places in the developing world, in order that international and local NGOs, and individuals can use the maps and data to better respond to crises affecting the areas.
Come along and have fun while making a tangible contribution to the humanitarian efforts in some very vulnerable scenarios.
This is a public event so pelase bring your friends and families!
