The MissingMaps project started almost three years ago. Since then, all over the world people have contributed to OpenStreetMap in those areas where maps are really needed and mostly missing: right where the Red Cross and Medicin Sans Frontieres have their fieldworkers to help in disaster areas, and areas with disasters waiting to happen.
During SHA there will be an ongoing Mapathon at the Maptime Village. In this talk and introduction to this international maphacking grassroot initiative will be given, along with some of the results from the project. And of course it will be presented in such a way that attendees will really love to help map the world, starting at SHA!
