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. Both beginners and experienced mappers are welcome to join this mapathon, please choose your ticket according to your level of mapping skills.

Where will we be mapping?

We will be working on high-priority projects requested by the Red Cross and MSF - TBC closer to date!

What do I need?

Just a laptop (you must bring your own with you), a mouse and enthusiasm (mouse isn't absolutely necessary but makes the mapping a lot faster. We may have access to spare mice, but it is unlikely there will be spare laptops).

What else can I bring?

Pizza will be provided, but if you feel like bringing something else along we'll be delighted to add it to the potluck table for all to enjoy.
