This Thursday 2nd MissingMaps Mapathon for Sokode/Togo in Heidelberg

As a direct follow_up of the successfull Mapathon in support of Sokode/Togo last week we invite any interested person to an additional MISSING MAPS mapping event THIS THURSDAY June 16th.

time: 18.00 – 20:00 p.m. (before the soccer game 😉
location: Berliner Straße 48, PC-Pool/ Hörsaal (Lecture Hall), Institute of Geography, Heidelberg University.

A short tutorial will be given initially, which explains the relevant practical basics of OpenStreetMap, usage of tools like overpass-turbo and the specifics of the region and the mapping task.
You can bring your own laptop if you prefer and we recommend to bring a mouse.

Sokodé, the third largest city in Togo is in need of digital maps for urban and regional planning. We have collaborations with the end users of that data that also will add further local data and knowledge.
The event is organized by students, the disastermappers HD and GIScience Heidelberg.
