MLK Jr. Day of Service Mapping Event

January 16 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Event Navigation

The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Support and Research Facility, in cooperation with IowaView, is hosting a Martin Luther King Jr. Day service event. All are invited to volunteer for this event; no experience is necessary.

Attendees will participate in a worldwide effort called Open Street Map, a crowd-sourced map of the world that is open source, free and available for any use. OSM provides online web-mapping tools for users to map roads, buildings, water bodies and features of interest using satellite imagery as a base. Past projects have worked with humanitarian groups like the Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders to create new maps in areas of the world dealing with disasters and emergencies.

Send an email to iowamapgive@gmail.com by Friday, Jan. 13 to register; please provide your pizza preference and whether you need a laptop computer. Additional information is online.
