World Refugee Day: Mapathon by CartONG

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced mapper, or just curious to learn more about why mapping is so important for humanitarian work, join us on 21 June.

Support the mapping of refugee locations on World Refugee Day. It was initiated by the United Nations and takes place every year on 20 June. Its aim is to draw attention to the plight of millions of people forced to flee conflict, persecution and other man-made or natural disasters.

CartONG ( is hosting an online bilingual (FR/EN) mapathon on Monday 21 June from 18:00 to 20:00 (Berlin/Paris) to map refugee locations. This event is organised jointly with MAMAPA, HuMap Trier and OSM Ghana. Furthermore, it is a good opportunity to meet other mappers.
