Humanitarian mapping project in progress...

Maelle Vercauteren
Hello all,

This mail about two parallel projects that could interest you ! ;-)

1) National Missing Maps Mapathon

On Saturday, April 16, in all Belgian geography departments, will be organized a Mapathon which you are cordially invited to.

This Mapathon gather volunteers for a mapping operation to improve the coverage of free OpenStreetMap data for areas affected by disasters, epidemics, ... in order to support humanitarian assistance in its cartographic needs.

For more information : http://www.internationalmapyear.be/mapathon.php
& registration: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/national-missing-maps-mapathon-tickets-23149918028


2) A Map for Dunkirk

There is also an other project that seems starting a purely volunteer 'humanitarian mapping project' in Europe.

In collaboration with refugees, the project Jungle maps supported by OSM France will create a detailed, multi-lingual map of the refugee camp in Dunkerque to improve the delivery of aid &services and safety & comfort to the residents.

If you want more information about the project or support them you can find their crowd funding campaign here :

Cheers,
