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.
