Come and join us for an evening of humanitarian mapping using an open Geographical Information System (GIS). The Missing Maps Project maps the most crisis-prone parts of the world utilising satellite, aerial and drone images. Using web map tools, identify buildings and directly help humanitarian organisations improve the lives of some of the planet’s most vulnerable people. Whether you’re an experienced Humanitarian Mapper or have never mapped before, come along to learn more about the Missing Maps Project, OpenStreetMaps and GIS. This event is run in partnership with Geography at QUB and the Ordnance Survey of Northern Ireland.
