Mapping for Humanity: Using Digital Mapping to Better the World

September 20 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Chicago, IL

In this workshop, students will learn how satellite images, collected by various agencies around the world, can be used to help global humanity. Platforms like OpenStreetMap and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team Tasking Manager offer an opportunity for volunteers, (such as the participants at TechGirlz) who are not necessarily experts in coding or interpreting this information, to contribute to critical missions. NGOs like the American Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders will use the maps we make during the workshop to plan relief and aid efforts around the world.
