What is it?

The aim of the Missing Maps Project is to map the most crisis-prone parts of the developing world. With your help we can directly improve the lives of some of the planet’s most vulnerable people. Both beginners and experienced mappers are welcome to join this mapathon, please choose your ticket according to your level of mapping skills.


Where will we be mapping?

This month the focus will be on mapping roads and settlements in Niger State, Nigeria.

MSF teams working in northern Nigeria respond to a variety of different health needs. These include emergency response to disease outbreaks across the area. Accurate maps of the area will assist emergency teams with epidemiological analysis, disease surveillance and logistical planning.


What do I need?

Just a laptop (you must bring your own with you), a mouse and enthusiasm (mouse isn't absolutely necessary but makes the mapping A LOT faster). If you have an extra laptop that you could bring, it could be used by other mappers. Please write that in the registration form.
