What is it?
The aim of the mapa-thon is to allow volunteers to discover how they could become digital humanitarians by learning how to map their own communities, and then collaborating with other mapping projects - without having to leave home.
Both beginners and experienced mappers are welcome to join this mapathon, please choose your ticket according to your level of mapping skills.
Where will we be mapping?
Mapa-thon Part I - We will be helping the San Juan City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office to validate / edit / update the emergency facilities of the city. Accurate maps of the city will assist emergency teams, in case of a disaster, as well as local administrators for resiliency and preparedness programs.
Mapa-thon Part II - We will be mapping other area of the country, to help fix overlapping or crossing buildings.
