Please join us to map the vulnerable regions affected by natural disasters. A mapathon is a great opportunity for volunteers to digitally connect and map the most vulnerable places in the world so that local and international Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) can use these maps and data to better respond to crises affecting these areas. Department of Geography and Earth Science will join he Humanitarian Openstreetmap Team (HOT)( in their mapping efforts to make opensource geospatial data available in the disaster stricken areas of USA, Mexico, and Bangladesh. Its a great way for our community to make a global impact.

It is open to everyone. You will just need a computer (feel free to bring your own laptop) and internet connection. No installation. No download. You don't have to be a mapping expert.

Volunteers can come and go anytime within the 3 hr period. You don't have to stay the whole time.
