MAPATHON AT YALE 2017
April 6 from 4:00-6:00pm at 17 Hillhouse Ave, room 101
Many of the places where natural disasters and health crises occur are literally "missing" from the map, and responders lack the information to properly provide relief. Learn how to contribute to responders' efforts with OpenStreetMap. We will introduce the platform, teach web mapping skills, and then work with participants to map infrastructure in high-priority areas for local humanitarian efforts.
This event is open to everyone, from beginners to advanced mappers. Bring a laptop. Food and drinks will be provided!
The Mapathon at Yale is a partnership between The Spatial Collective, Missing Maps, and the Digital Humanities Lab, and supports the work of the Red Cross, Médecins Sin Frontières, and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team.
