Puerto Rico Mapathon for Hurricane Relief

September 29, 2017
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Studio@Butler (208B), Butler Library, Columbia University, New York

Come help with relief efforts on the ground in Puerto Rico by contributing your time to open-source mapping.

Following the recent hurricane, people around the world are using the OpenStreetMap platform to give their time to hurricane relief efforts. The Red Cross in Puerto Rico has requested two tasks we can help with for their relief efforts. During the mapathon, we will teach people how to help with these efforts through mapping, and we will map together. View the event poster for additional details.

No mapping experience necessary. No knowledge of local terrain is necessary. Come any time during the afternoon. Please bring your laptop & RSVP to agil@columbia.edu.

This event is organized by Columbia’s Group for Experimental Methods in the Humanities & Columbia University Libraries.
