Hosting a Mapathon

Post by HighPitch006 » Sun Oct 06, 2019 2:41 pm

Could this group of geospatial minding people eventually get into hosting a mapathon event ever so often to volunteer map on Open Street Map, rural areas of Mississippi for food security or urban areas of Mississippi for Urban Heat Island? Or participate with the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) and volunteer map the critical areas of missing maps needed around the world? I would be very interested in participating in a meetup event for this to volenteer ever so often.

We are working to grow the number of connections between geospatial users in MS.
Our initial need will be verified point addressing in rural areas in preparation for NG911.
As we get universities and hopefully more non-profits involved I would suspect the desire to participate might grow.
We have a ways to go in my estimation.
