Mapathon for Puerto Rico a success!
This past Friday, mappers, new and old, gathered in the the Knight Library for a Mapathon through the University of Oregon Youth Mappers chapter in the Department of Geography. Despite a last minute organization in response to the devastation of Hurricane Irma in Puerto Rico, about fifty-five people turned out to map critical infrastructure for disaster relief. Keene Corbin, Kyle Hendricks, Josie Imrie and Greg Fitzgerald organized this session along with the Knight Library (who provided the amazing computer lab and the pizza!). The organizers gave a brief lesson on how to map and the volunteers took off.
If you are interested in in joining the Youth Mappers/ Geography Club, please drop by their weekly meeting on Mondays at 5pm in Condon 108. They are planning more mapping activities, as well as field trips! Contact Keene Corbin firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
