What is it?

For anyone interested in maps, humanitarian mapping, or wants to learn more!

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. You will be contributing to OpenStreetMap data to help map susceptible areas in the developing world.

No experience necessary, we will be talking you through what you need to do and there will be volunteers at hand from thinkWhere to help you if you need it!


Where will we be mapping?
