Respond to Urgent Mapping Requests

Claremont Colleges Missing Maps Mapathon


Join us Saturday February @10am for a fun event to contribute to urgent mapping requests. The Missing Maps project is an open collaboration of NGOs that aims to map the most vulnerable places in the developing world, so that international and local organizations, as well as individuals can use the maps and data to better respond to crises affecting the areas. We’ll support the Community Mapping and Training project with the national Department of Disaster Management Affairs in Malawi.  This job aims at adding the missing buildings, that will serve to estimate the number of affected people for each settlement.

For more information and to sign up you can visit http://missingmaps.strikingly.com. No experience is needed.  Bring a laptop (preferably along with a mouse). No software installs are required.  This session is located at the CGU Academic Computing Building (ACB) Room 214
