On Nov 4th, The Red Cross will hold a Missing Maps Mapathon at UC Libraries in 475 Langsam from 10 am to 2 pm. The information collected from a Mapathon helps the Red Cross identify the best locations to bring in emergency supplies, where to house emergency operations and what local resources they can collaborate with in emergency response efforts. In order to participate, you do not need extensive mapping experience. The maps are creating using the Open Street Map platform and you can learn quickly by watching a training video.
If you are interested to participate, please register here – https://goo.gl/forms/Ln4LdEKcFNc7CUTt2 and watch the training video.
Please contact Amy Koshoffer – ASKGIS@UC.EDU if you have questions about the event.
