Help Map Vulnerable Places

missingmapsAGI Scotland members may be interested in the first Missing Maps event being held in Glasgow this week. We asked organiser Duncan Bain to share some information with us about this new initiative –

“The Missing Maps project helps Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and the Red Cross by creating maps of vulnerable places, providing a vital resource for their on-the-ground staff as well as local people.

The first Missing Maps event in Glasgow takes place on Thursday 9th April at the Project Cafe on Renfrew Street.

Missing Maps mapathons are open to everyone. You can come and learn how to create maps and contribute to a global mapping project, OpenStreetMap. All you need is a laptop, some spare time and enthusiasm, and you can take part in humanitarian work from Glasgow.

At our first Missing Maps event in Glasgow people will be on hand to help you learn how to map at your own pace. If you want to know more about how you can prepare for a mapathon, this guide gives some tips.

We are being generously hosted by The Project Cafe, an amazing community space and social enterprise cafe.

We have created a facebook page for the event, so please, invite your friends and we look forward to meeting you at the first of what we hope are many Missing Maps Glasgow events ”

You can sign up to attend the event online.
