Mapping Event to support relief efforts in Ecuador

Last Saturday Ecuador was hit by a devastating earthquake that caused a lot of casualties and destruction. With no current map material available relief efforts turned out challenging.

We want to support the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap team activation for Ecuador with a Mapping Event at the Geographical Institute at Heidelberg University.

In the event you will get the chance to collect OpenStreetMap data of the affected region and to thereby support the local population and the humanitarian organizations on the ground.

If you are interested in becoming active please join us in the Hörsaal in Berliner Straße 48 from 6 pm.

No previous knowledge or tools needed. We will start with a small mapping introduction and will be there to assist and answer questions.Only bring your own laptop and mouse if available.

Drinks and snacks will for sure be provided 🙂

Very looking forward,

disastermappers heidelberg
