We’re holding a mapathon! We’re working with the Ger Community Mapping Center from Mongolia to map areas in need in Ulanbaatar. This work will assist local groups in Mongolia and enable communities to work for better resources and to address environmental and social concerns. It’s a great opportunity for you to learn about collaborative mapping with OpenStreetMap and help out!

Where: Science Building, Auraria Campus, Room 2009

When: Monday, November 14, 2016 @ 5pm – 7pm

** BRING YOUR LAPTOP IF YOU CAN! ** We’ll have some computers available that you can use as well.


What is a mapathon? From the Missing Maps website:

“A mapathon is a unique and engaging opportunity for volunteers to digitally connect and 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. Digital volunteer engagement is vital for the success of many humanitarian organizations around the world in responding to disasters. It is imperative to have a larger pool of trained volunteers that are ready to assist with little coordination when a disaster occurs. ” — Missing Maps
