Tonight’s Geo DC meetup will look at the strategies and techniques around mapping slums and undocumented areas to provide residents with a tangible record of their properties and aid international development. The meetup will start at 7:00 pm tonight (February 1) at Stetson’s.
There are four fantastic presentations on the lineup:
Mikel Maron will talk about his work with GroundTruth mapping Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, East Jerusalem, and Cite Soleil.
Brian English from CHF International will talk about his work mapping slums in India and Ghana. Watch his ignite talk for a preview.
Josh Goldstein from the World Bank will talk about his work mapping Dar es Salam.
Christoph Koettl from Amnesty International will discuss his work mapping slums in Chad.
So far an incredible 110+ people have RSVPed for the meetup - which would make this the largest Geo DC gathering yet. If you plan to attend, come early to grab a drink and plan on meeting some new folks.
