Event description

Description

Participant Requirements: Please bring your own laptop - wifi will be provided.

Facilitator:

Ellen Ward Co-founder of Tech For Good Dublin and IT Manager at Concern Worldwide.

Focus:

A participative workshop creating maps as part of an open source project from MissingMaps.org

Background:

Concern Worldwide and MSF Ireland are part of a global movement to build digital maps of vulnerable and remote areas around the world. Since 2016 Concern has been mapping urban areas in Port au Prince, Haiti where community resilience projects are underway and MSF are mapping large areas of famine effected South Sudan.

Volunteers can learn in a few minutes how to use the OSM HOT Task Manager tool to draw houses, roads and other features onto satellite imagery. Group events are fun and produce digital maps which help NGOs and community groups working in unmapped areas.

This is a participative workshop and you'll need to bring your own laptop and mouse. No previous experience is required. See MissingMaps.org for more information.

Numbers are limited for the workshop. Refreshments will be provided.
