Help us trace satellite imagery and create maps of areas that are not on the map. Topics:
- How to increase the speed at which the most vulnerable people can be put on the map
- Find new ways to get local knowledge and information on the map
- Develop data analysis tools/ideas to generate insights from the data that is mapped
- How to improve the quality of what volunteer mappers around the world produce
