SUMMARY

On Friday, November 20th, George Mason University’s Geography and Geoinformation Department will host a Mapathon where mappers will choose from various impactful mapping projects that create open data to help the humanitarian and development community. We will be able to share the work we accomplish and look at each other’s mapping contribution. 

The mapping events are supported by Missing Maps, NOVA Community College ASPRS club, George Mason University ASPRS club, Peace Corps, National Geographic, and MapGive.


EVENING AGENDA

4:00 - 5:00pm Kick-off - Let's map: Hear about all the cool mapping projects you can choose from. Beginner mappers will receive training. There will also be a room dedicated to advanced training using JOSM mapping editor.

5:00 - 5:30pm Food break

6:00 - 8:00pm Mo Mapping!   


WHAT DO I NEED? 

You do not need a laptop or a mouse because we have reserved computer labs. We just need your enthusiasm!

 

DO I NEED TO BE A MAPPING EXPERT?

No! You do not need any previous experience. If you have time before you come, and you are new to mapping via OpenStreetMap, please have a look at the training videos here. We will also have volunteers ready to help you.

You can learn more about the crowdsourced mapping movement by checking out the MapGive and Missing Maps websites.

Please choose the appropriate ticket to this event that matches your skill level so we can plan our training more effectively!

 

WHERE IS IT?

The event will be held on the 2nd floor of Exploratory Hall (Room 2301) at George Mason University Fairfax campus in Virginia. Visitor parking is available on the lowest level of the Shenandoah Parking Deck (about $10). Once you enter the building from the main level/first floor you will see a sign directing you to the second floor registration table where you can get your name badges and be guided to the computer labs.
