We are mappers who will use your contribution for humanitarian efforts. We will provide map content to support Water and Habitat initiatives of the ICRC.
A mapathon is an event that allows everyone to map the world and learn how to map in OpenStreetMap, the free and opensource geodatabase of the world!
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. This is exactly what we will be doing during this mapathon!

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).
