Join the GWU Humanitarian Mapping Society, and the Missing Maps Project for the first in a series of monthly mapathons, helping to map areas where humanitarian organizations are trying to meet the needs of vulnerable populations. 

Each year, disasters around the world kill nearly 100,000 and affect or displace 200 million people. Many of the places where these disasters occur are literally 'missing' from any map and first responders lack the information to make valuable decisions regarding relief efforts. Missing Maps is an open, collaborative project who's goal is to map the most vulnerable places in the developing world, in order that international and local NGOs and individuals can use the maps and data to better respond to crises affecting the areas.

Mapping beings at 7pm, and training for newcomers will also be offered at this time. Food/drinks will be available mid-way through the event.

Arrive early to check in at the front desk of the library, and please make sure to bring your laptop to the event!
