Join the Research Data and Digital Scholarship team for a Penn Mapathon event, as we participate in a global effort to map areas where humanitarian organizations are trying to meet the needs of people who live at risk of disasters and crisis. We'll trace features such as buildings and roads from satellite images onto an open basemap, which will then be edited and completed by communities on the ground. No prior experience is necessary and training and guidance will be provided. This is an in-person event; we ask that you consider the wellbeing of others and wear a mask.

This event is a contribution to the Missing Maps Project (https://www.missingmaps.org/) and the culmination of a week-long Earth Week Data Jam hosted by the Libraries' Research Data and Digital Scholarship team.
