Launch event: Science of Cities Seminars

Missing Maps: putting the most vulnerable cities on the map

12th January 2017

4pm Talk by Pete Masters, MSF UK

5pm – 7pm Humanitarian Mapping Event

Location: OC1.04 (talk) / OC1.01 (mapping event) – The Oculus

What’s the point of spending loads of my free time sitting at a computer drawing round little shapes on blurry satellite images in places that I will probably never go?

Missing Maps is a crowdsourced mapping project, where 1000s of individuals dedicate hours of their time to tracing geographical features from satellite images. To an outside observer, it can look mind numbing, but these volunteers are providing NGOs and others with vital datasets that otherwise would not exist. For Medecins Sans Frontieres, Missing Maps volunteers have directly contributed to the provision of occupational health services in Bangladesh, mass vaccination campaigns in the Democratic Republic of Congo, cholera readiness in Sierra Leone and much more. Find out how by coming to hear this imaginatively titled talk.

After the talk, we will be mapping northern Nigeria together to support the MSF emergency response unit. Come, join us to learn how to help to produce maps from satellite images to support humanitarian work and have a lot of fun (and free pizza too).
