Spring Mapathon

5 May 2022 from 18:30 to 21:00 CEST

To celebrate the summer semester and that COVID-19 cases are dropping, we are excited to bring back an in-person Mapathon!
We will join the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team in its efforts to map unmapped places vulnerable to disaster across the world.

For this event, EGEA Bonn collaborates with the Geography Student Council of Uni Bonn and students of the United Nations University in Bonn. This will be an excellent opportunity for EGEAns interested in disaster management and the United Nations University Masters program in Bonn.
The event will be held at the Geozentrum Ü9, starting at 6:30 pm but joining online via Zoom will also be possible.

We will be creating digital maps of a vulnerable or affected area using the services provided by MissingMaps and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT-area). This is done with user-friendly software that requires no previous mapping, GIS, or remote sensing skills. Everyone is welcome, and we will provide support to first-time mappers and snacks.

Please RSVP so we can provide you with directions to the event and the zoom link.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to a special Mapathon and celebrating the spring together.
