MSF Geo Week Global Mapathons

Join one of our virtual mapathons in celebration of International Geo Week

November 16 2020, 12:30pm - November 19 2020, 9:00pm ET

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) invites you to participate in a week of virtual Missing Maps activities with colleagues and supporters from around the world. These events are a part of Open Street Map’s Geography Awareness Week, during which a global coalition of partners, community groups, and map lovers will join together to celebrate geography and contribute to MSF's humanitarian work in the field!

A special initiative founded by Doctors Without Borders, the American Red Cross, the 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.
