  • Join breakout rooms according to mapping experience. Beginner mappers will learn how to map;
  • Join breakout rooms according to language( English, French, Swahili, and Arabic);
  • Network with OSM Africa community members from all over the continent;
  • Participate in lightning talks.

This mapathon will be hosted on Zoom and coordinated by OSM Africa and OSM Rwanda with support from the Open Mapping Hub - Eastern and Southern Africa.
