UN Map Marathon
👟 Join our competition! Participation is open to all (even if you have never mapped before)!
You will only need your computer, a mouse and an OpenStreetMap account.
The goal of the UN Map marathon is to contribute to UN projects through mapping on OpenStreetMap. This data will be a valuable aid in the field and will be effectively used!
Depending on the project chosen by the participant, you will contribute to peacekeeping operations in several African countries or to education planning in Madagascar, thanks to a collaboration between IIEP-UNESCO and UN Mappers.
