May 2019 - Mapathon

On Wednesday the 8th of May starting at 19:00 we facilitated the first Maptime Salzburg mapathon, focusing on a humanitarian mapping task in Southern Kivu (Task #5912) in collaboration with Doctors without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)), the Austrian Red Cross and Missing Maps. Edith Rogenhofer from MSF Vienna was kind enough to introduce the area and mapping campaign via Skype, despite some technical difficulties. Around 15 people attended the event, with 13 documented OSM mappers completing 346 task tiles during the mapathon.

We met again at the iDEAS:lab (Schillerstrasse 30, Techno-Z, Building/Bauteil XV), generously made possible by Z_GIS, including some sponsored snacks and beverages.
