Description

MSF Australia - Missing Maps Mapathon

Join us for our Missing Maps Mapathon! Come along and enjoy a night of mapping, fun, some of your favourite tunes and free food and drinks!

What is Missing Maps?

Many of the places where disasters and disease outbreaks occur are literally 'missing' from any map and first responders lack the information to make valuable decisions regarding relief efforts. Missing Maps is an open, collaborative project in which you can help to map areas where humanitarian organisations are trying to meet the needs of vulnerable people.

Mapping is done via an online tool that you will learn how to use at the event. It is no problem if you have never mapped before - it doesn't take long to learn!
