Putting the World’s Vulnerable People on the Map

  • Village Berlin Workshop Space 31-32 Kurfürstenstraße Berlin, Berlin, 10785 Germany (map)

Each year, disasters around the world devastate millions of 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 in which you can help to map areas where humanitarian organizations are trying to meet the needs of vulnerable people.

Together with you we will digitally explore remote regions and map villages, roads and other geographical details that are not on a map yet!

Schedule:

20:00: Registration & set-up of the notebooks of participants

20:15: Introduction to Missing Maps and practical information about humanitarian projects using maps that originated from Missing Maps.

Introduction into the technical basics of mapping and presentation of the iD-editor.

Afterwards: Personal assistance and support for mapping.

23:00: End of day presentation and informing about upcoming events
