Invitation to be part of the first MAPATHON in Namibia
NUST – 06 and 13th May 2019
What is a Mapathon?
A Mapathon – also called mapping party- is a coordinated mapping event. The public is invited to make online map improvements in their local area to improve coverage. Mapathons use an online site for storing map data. Mapathons are often held inside (armchair mapping) in a room with strong Wi-Fi for simultaneous access, assisted by satellite imagery (Wikipedia).
Who can participate to the Mapathon?
Anybody with GIS skills. The two best skills of a Mapathoner are (i) being smart in high resolution image interpretation and (ii) being meticulous in digitising.
