Putting the World's Vulnerable People on the Map

Each year, disasters around the world kill nearly 100,000 and affect or displace 200 million people. Many of the places where these disasters occur are literally 'missing' from any map and first responders lack the information to make valuable decisions regarding relief efforts. Missing Maps is an open, collaborative project in which you can help to map areas where humanitarian organisations are trying to meet the needs of vulnerable people.

As a virtual volunteer you will:

  • Trace satellite  imagery into OpenStreetMap
  • It is no problem if you have never mapped before - it doesn't take long to learn. Visit the beginners section to find out how.
