Puerto Rico Mapathon for Hurricane Relief mapathon
Columbia University Libraries & Columbia’s Group for Experimental Methods in the Humanities invites you to a Puerto Rico Mapathon for relief efforts.
Come help with relief efforts on the ground in Puerto Rico by contributing your time to open-source mapping.
No mapping experience necessary. No knowledge of local terrain is necessary. Come any time during the afternoon. This short video can introduce you to the OSM mapping work
Please bring your laptop & RSVP to email@example.com
Since we announced our event on the weekend, we have been moved to see other universities/teams follow our lead. Added to our event, we feel this can have a real impact on ground operations. Universities running mapathons so far:
- Boston University
- University of Omaha
- Rutgers University
- University of Miami
- Trinity College
- University of Southern California
- Indiana University
- Stony Brook University
- Miami University
- University of Houston
- University of Pennsylvania
- Temple University
- San Jose State University
- California State University
- Princeton University
We are working on a toolkit with these teams that we hope to share with other teams looking to replicate our model in the future. Stay tuned.
