MapSwipe | Mapping the world a swipe at a time!
Description: The Map Men - Mark and Jay, (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfxy4_sBQdxy3A2lvl-y3qWTeJEbC_QCp) explain what MapSwipe is.
During a humanitarian crisis, it is essential to know where vulnerable people are located, yet millions around the world are not represented on any accessible map.
When Medecins Sans Frontieres / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) responds to major disease outbreaks with mass vaccination campaigns, hundreds of teams have to cover enormous areas (as happened in the measles outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo last year). Now, with MapSwipe, we can give vaccination campaign coordinators a super-fast snapshot of where the population clusters are, helping them to send their teams to the locations where they are most needed to achieve maximum vaccination coverage.
MapSwipe is part of Missing Maps, a collaborative project in which a large and committed community of NGOs, academic institutes, companies, and most of all individual mappers, map vulnerable areas in OpenStreetMap.
