Mapathon

AGS and Teach OpenStreetMap (TeachOSM) conducted a Mapathon which was sponsored by Mapbox. The Mapathon was led by Dr. Nuala Cowan, Disaster Risk Management Consultant at The World Bank, Mr. Richard Hinton, Manager of the Spatial Analysis Lab at George Washington University, and Mr. Steven Johnson, Founder of TeachOSM. Participants worked in OpenStreetMap (OSM), the world’s open and freely editable mapping platform, to map unmapped places in the world. Participants had the chance to speak with Mr. Bryan Housel, Project Lead of OpenStreetMap iD Editor and software engineer at Mapbox. By the end of the Mapathon, participants mapped buildings and roads in Nogales, Arizona and Albany, Georgia, making their first contributions to the open mapping community and learning how to develop projects for students that relate to use in their curriculum.
