Mapathon @ TU Munich

Munich, Bavaria, Germany
Technical University of Munich

29th July 15:00 – 17:00

Mapathon @ TU Munich is a coordinated event where volunteers gather to map areas using satellite imagery, contributing to OpenStreetMap. These events can be held globally, and participants map objects like buildings and roads using a browser-based tool. The mapping tasks are divided into smaller sections for easier management. Experienced volunteers validate the work to ensure quality.

Anyone can join a Mapathon, with no prior experience needed, as training is provided at the start. It's helpful that participants bring a laptop and internet connection with a mouse being helpful, but not essential. Mapathons foster a community of mappers and help create vital maps for vulnerable areas, aiding NGOs in crisis response.
