Have you ever wondered how your address is easy to spot on maps? We have moved from hand-drawn maps to physical representations, to mark places in the geography class, to skimming through the atlas, and now to virtual maps on our phones.

  • Join us as we use satellite data, and map places that are 'missing' from virtual maps.
  • Each year, disasters around the world kill nearly 100,000 and affect or displace 200 million people. Many of the places where these disasters occur are literally 'missing' from any map and first responders lack the information to make valuable decisions regarding relief efforts. Mapathon is an open, collaborative project in which you can help to map areas where humanitarian organizations are trying to meet the needs of vulnerable people.
  • Come join us for a fun, collaborative experience of mapping places.
  • No prior experience or knowledge required.
