Resources, tutorials, and info for USC's Map-a-thon for Puerto Rico

Welcome!

 

Map-a-thon for Puerto Rico

Following the recent hurricane, people around the world are using the OpenStreetMap platform to donate their time to hurricane relief efforts. The Red Cross in Puerto Rico has requested help with their relief efforts, and libraries (Columbia, Rutgers, Univ. of Miami, UCLA, now USC, and more!) are responding!

During the map-a-thon you learn how to help with these efforts through some easy to learn mapping tasks in a web-based application. Just bring a laptop. Drop in between 11 and 3pm. At 11am and 1:30pm a 20 minute tutorial will be offered. If you can’t make the tutorial, don’t worry - drop by anytime!

No​ ​mapping​ ​experience,​ ​knowledge​ ​of​ ​local​ ​geography,​ ​or​ ​software​ ​installation​ ​is required.

Donuts and coffee will be provided.

Where: VKC Library Multi-Media Room
When: October 5th, 11am - 3pm

Please RSVP here. Space is limited -
