3-Day Mapathon Will Focus on Humanitarian Interests
Join a community of online mappers at the AAG Annual Meeting in San Francisco to contribute to OpenStreetMap’s humanitarian efforts. The Mapathon Lounge will open at 11:40 a.m to 3:00 p.m. on March 30-April 1 at the Hilton Union Square.
Each day of the Mapathon event will feature a thematic keynote presentation, mapping guidance, and open data creation, and will be preceded and followed by related panel sessions in the same room (check your AAG program for details).
Sessions include “Partnering to Grow the Humanitarian Mapping Crowd” and “Opportunities and Challenges Ahead for the Open Mapping Community,” as well as open mapping sessions during lunch each day. These sessions will feature insights from speakers involved in a variety of mapping projects, including students, university faculty, government, and nonprofit partners.
