Join us anytime between 5-7 p.m. in the Morris Library, Rm 116a

Food and drink will be provided, and please bring your laptop!

What is a mapathon? A mapathon is where people from all backgrounds work together to add data to maps in areas of need.

Why map? Humanitarian aid organizations need map data to administer aid, however this data is often missing or expensive to acquire. This is how we contribute!

Where do we map? Anywhere in the world! But we give priority to areas in need of disaster relief. This event will focus on climate change in the Philippines.

What do you need? Just a laptop and an internet connection! We use OpenStreetMap, an online tool, so no software is necessary. OSM is easy to learn, no mapping experience is required!

This is a collaborative event between: UD Library, Museums, and Press; UD Information Technologies; Epsilon Eta; Earth, Ocean, and Environment Club; Engineers Without Borders - UD; and Geology Club.
