Missing Maps Mapathon in Edinburgh

Missing Maps in Edinburgh returns at the Old Infirmary Building on Drummond Street on Thursday 22nd June from 6pm – 9pm.

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

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 Edinburgh.

At our Missing Maps event in Edinburgh, volunteers 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 University of Edinburgh’s GeoSciences department. We will be there from 6pm and will be mapping till around 9pm, before we head nearby for some post-mapping drinks!
