Mapathon med Ingeniører Uten Grenser og Inventas
Engineers without Borders Trøndelag invites members and everyone interested to the next mapathon at Inventas in Trondheim, thursday 18 January.
A mapathon is a great opportunity for volunteers to digitally connect and map the most vulnerable places in the developing world so that local and international Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) can use these maps and data to better respond to crises affecting these areas.
It does not matter if you are a beginner or already experienced at mapping. We will give a brief introduction and will help you along the way.
What to bring
Remember to bring your laptop and for more editing comfort maybe a mouse.
