If learning how to create maps, supporting a global cause to combat HIV/AIDS, and/or eating free pizza sound intriguing, come out to the International GIS Day Mapathon at the Center for Geospatial Analysis (second floor of Swem Library) on Wednesday, November 15th from 5:30 - 7:30 PM. No experience necessary--we will have expert mappers on site to help teach all the skills you need! The event is sponsored by the US State Department’s MapGive Program and the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to support data-driven initiatives combating HIV/AIDS. We will create maps in a PEPFAR region on OpenStreetMap to be used by local health workers to find health clinics and connect patients with resources. Come be part of this global mission for a fantastic cause!
The event is hosted by the MapGive and PEPFAR programs, the Center for Geospatial Analysis (CGA), and W&M’s Youth Mappers Chapter, All Over the Map! Have questions? Please contact [[e|apchamseddine, Anissa Chams-Eddine]].
