Event type: Live online

Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) invites you to participate in a virtual mapathon on Thursday, February 29 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. ET. 

A special initiative founded by Doctors Without Borders, American Red Cross, British Red Cross, and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, Missing Maps is powered by volunteers around the world. Using OpenStreetMap, an open, free, and crowd-sourced platform, volunteers map underserved regions in order to provide international and local NGOs and individuals with geographic data to better respond to crises. 

At this virtual mapping party, we will be mapping parts of the world's most remote locations to help MSF respond more effectively to humanitarian emergencies like disease outbreaks, war and conflict, and natural disasters.  Both beginners and experienced mappers are welcome to join this Mapathon. We will be utilizing the OpenStreetMap Platform and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team Tasking Manager
