The United States Diplomacy Center has partnered with MapGive to host a mapathon on April 5 2019, from 1-4pm in the Diplomacy Center pavilion.  The purpose of the mapathon is to create necessary digital map data for humanitarian and development causes, including combating HIV/AIDS, humanitarian assistance, and public diplomacy. Mapathons are unique events that facilitate volunteer participation in a global mapping movement that helps solve some of our most pressing challenges.  Participants will simultaneously learn about the impact of open mapping and learn how to use satellite imagery to create map data through the OpenStreetMap platform.

To learn more, watch our “Why Map?” video: https://mapgive.state.gov/why-map/
